Hunting with Falcons

Our latest website article looks at falconry in Qatar and Arabia, including its history, present day practice and issues with the declining number of falcons and houbara, the favourite prey of Arab falconers. You can also listen to the sounds of the falcons and watch a video of a falconer hunting gazelle.

You may also be interested in the movie below, which shows two saluki hounds and a falcon working together to catch a rabbit.
