Birds on the Plane

After landing at Doha Aiport from Baku, Azerbaijan, a group of Qatari men hold their most treasured birds on the transfer bus to the terminal. The men practise the art of falconry and to escape the heat of Qatar flew for a week to the cooler weathers of Azerbaijan to let the birds fly. The birds cost over US$10,000 each, have micro-chips in their legs so they can find them if they fly off and documents allowing them to travel abroad.
