Raptors

So many new readers.

I feel I should introduce myself again but I hardly know where to begin.

First of all, I want you all to know that I am a bird of prey. A bird of prey is called a “Raptor”.

Somehow ten or so years ago a H. Sapiens produced a movie that depicted Raptors, especially my distant ancestor Velociraptor, in a dark light.   The truth is our role is crucial in maintaining the balance of nature.

Now, there’s nothing wrong with being a Raptor. In fact, I’m proud of it. We are all characterized by keen vision that allows us to detect rodents and fish during flight and by powerful talons and beaks

Here are a few other Raptors with which you may be familiar:

 

Bald Eagle

Falcon                                                                                   Hawks

And several others:

  • Kiteshave long wings and relatively weak legs.
  • Buzzardsare medium-large raptors with robust bodies and broad wings.
  • Harriersare large, slender hawk-like birds with long tails and long thin legs.
  • Vulturesare carrion-eating raptors
  • Owlsare variable-sized, typically night-specialized hunting birds. They fly almost silently due to their special feather structure that reduces turbulence. They have particularly acute hearing.
  • Merlins the Merlin is a small species of falcon from the Northern Hemisphere
  • There is even Raptor known as The Secretary Bird.
  • And more.
