Falcon Hospital Abu Dhabi
Outside Abu Dhabi there is a hospital for falcons. Breeding, hunting and caring for falcons is a popular pastime in the Emirates. Sometimes they lose a feather or break a limb and need some attention. This one has his hood on which seems to make them very placid. The little cone in the nostril breaks up the airflow as they attack at 250k/hour and this design was adopted by jet designers to solve engine intake problems.
