Egypt’s falconers community gather to celebrate World Falconry Day

Egypt’s community of falconers gathered on Saturday in Borg El Arab to celebrate World Falconry Day, Xinhua said. “For two days, falconers have been showing their skills and the skills of the birds in hunting, speed as well as the beauty of the raptors,” Egyptian falconer Sayed El Sayed said. El Sayed is the admin of Al Qannas Al Masry “Egyptian Sniper” Facebook page, one of the event’s organizers. The Raptors Club of Egypt, which has some 12k followers, also helped organize the event. Falconry as an art and sport is believed by many to have originated in Egypt. The falconers train by releasing the birds into the skies and carefully luring them back in using special techniques, sounds, and items made to look like their natural prey (watch, runtime: 4:33).
