ALEXANDRIA, Egypt - In the heart of the golden desert, dozens of enthusiastic falconers and their raptors marked the sixth edition of World Falconry Day.

"The relationship between my falcon and I is unique ... I spent a long time to train him and we are kind of close friends now," Ibrahim said after his bird landed on his gloved fist.
