Day 13 - Feathery Friends

America's Next Top Falcon
Like camels, falcons are big news in the Middle East. So much so, that there's an annual event where Falcons of the world are gathered and judged on their beauty. Yes, you heard correctly.

If you're wondering what makes a falcon attractive, then shame on you! It's things like hunting prowess, beak size, feathers and patterns.

To the untrained eye, they all look like, well, birds to me. But with many selling for tens of thousands of dollars, these feathery brethren should not be underestimated. Squawk!
