United Arab Emirates (UAE). Abu Dhabi Falcon Hospital. An Emirati man seats on a bench and wait to enter into the hospital for his falcon's health checkup. The hospital is considered the leading center in the world for falcon medical care. It is equipped with everything a hospital requires for treating humans, except that the patients have wings. Falcons are birds of prey in the genus Falco, which includes about 40 species. Adult falcons have thin, tapered wings, which enable them to fly at high speed and change direction rapidly. Additionally, they have keen eyesight for detecting food at a distance or during flight, strong feet equipped with talons for grasping or killing prey, and powerful, curved beaks for tearing flesh. Falcons kill with their beaks, using a "tooth" on the side of their beaks. The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is a country in Western Asia at the northeast end of the Arabian Peninsula. 19.02.2020  © 2020 Didier Ruef
