My husband has a fascination for birds of prey. He loves to watch them as they are so graceful when they soar. They have such brilliant eye sight, and it is really clever to see them home in on prey from such a distance away.
I do and I have just been outside watching a wedge tailed eagle! Wow, Vee, you're GOOD! Anyway, he was just gliding about and looking like Joe Cool but Mother Magpie took exception to his being in her air space so she screamed the neighbourhood down, called in reinforcements and they beat him out of town. LOL. Obviously he wasn't hunting or he would have stayed. I get a family of Whistling Kites around here as well as a beautiful Square Tailed Kite. They are all so magnificent.
:-D That would have been a sight to see, Rice. We were fortunate enough to see a birds of prey show at the Medieval Fayre in Downside recently. Unfortunately, the eagle didn't get to come out. But the owl was so cute!
