Falconry

Some of the guidebooks show pictures of older men with their birds. Are they just for photo ops, or can I meet and watch them in action?

Nor me. Are you perhaps looking at Gulf states/Arabian peninsula photographs where falconry is very popular?

National Geographic traveler guidebook. Photo on page 64 (El Jadida).

It also mentions that falconry is practiced in Boulaoune.

OK, if you google 'el jadida falconry' there are some links.

Wasn't aware of that. Please let us know how you get on when you visit.
