Hunting with birds of prey – falcons, golden eagles, hawks has always been popular both in the West and in the East. In England, Germany, USA, Italy, Spain, falconry is still in demand. Under it, even state lands are allocated.
Someone calls falconry a sport, someone calls it an elite entertainment accessible only to wealthy people. For example, for Arabs, falcons are an indicator of status, because often birds of prey are more expensive than a luxury car, yacht or luxury house.
