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:
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.
