My Pet is a Falcon

I stumbled upon a fellow blogger’s site today and I found this entry amusing.

It’s funny when we look at it from another culture.

But do you know that Falconry is one of the oldest traditional valued sports in UAE dating back to almost 2000 years.

The ability of this predator to be tamed and made to obey the call of its master is a mystery of nature that adds fascination to falconry for Arabs.

Still, never in  my life would I wish for a falcon as a pet.

  1. You should read TH White’s “Sword in the Stone”. Very interesting when Merlin turns Arthur into a bird of prey (can’t quite remember what kind).
