Birds, Birds, Birds

Last weekend I joined another Al Ain Weekends trip, this time to see some falcons and flamingos in Dubai. After meeting with the group, we set off to Dubai. Our first stop was at the Falcon Souq. Inside this souq there are shops that sell all types of outdoor equipment from falconry supplies to camping supplies and tons of other things in between. You can also buy live falcons there and there are a few veterinarian offices inside. Here are some pictures from the souq.

After the falcons we stopped at the Ras Al Khor Wildlife Sanctuary to see the flamingos. Just a quick stop, as the hide is small and we were a large group.
