Kuwait Falcon Hospital Pure, int’l destination for treating wild birds

KUWAIT: Established especially for wild birds, Kuwait Falcon Hospital Pure is an international destination for treating, caring for and preparing falcons for the hunting season in October. In a press statement Wednesday, Director of Kuwait Falcon Hospital Pure Nasser Al-Ajmi said that wild birds need extreme care and attention to be able to adapt to captivity as it is a free bird and likes to fly freely.

Ajmi explained that one of the aspects of caring for falcons in the Arab Gulf countries is to give them rest during hot summer, in a phase known as ‘tying bird’, which extends between February and October. This phase is very important as falcons change their feather and need to be kept in a cooled, sunny place with shades and far from the movement of people in order to maintain the process of emerging new feathers, which appear very slowly.

The hospital, which receives hundreds of cases from all over the world, includes a group of qualified and experienced specialists and experts, and provides care for other species of rare birds in order to preserve them, added Ajmi. He noted that falcons and birds receive medical supervision since their admission to the hospital until they are handed back to their owners at the end of the bird’s tie phase.
