Why birds of prey, you ask. Well...I was first introduced to these magnificent creatures while volunteering at the zoo here and I've been hooked on birds of prey ever since. I find birds of prey very humbling, powerful, graceful, and inspiring.
Just the way they watch you, it seems that their eyes
penetrate through you. I find that all birds of prey have a very intense look, stare, gaze
or whatever you chose to call it. Whenever you have a hawk or falcon flying to your fist,
it is quite humbling. Partly because your fist is just a perch to land on and the
hawk/falcon chooses if it wants to land or fly elsewhere. The training given to that
particular bird is just that, because there is still that wild instinct to do what it
Many of the world's animal species are endangered and/or threatened...hell even the common animals you find all around will probably fall victim to habitat destruction, pollution and poaching. You can do your part by building and providing nestboxes/homes to certain species, such as kestrels (small falcons) or screech owls. I've got nestbox plans [ HERE ].
