How my Red-tailed Hawk says hello. x

Fun fact: red-tailed hawk calls often replace bald eagle calls in movies and the like. Probably because the bald eagle actually sounds like this

Oh my god that eagle in the second link oh my god

Hawk: Majestic screeching
Eagle: Adorable chirping





Hello yes! A Science Birb, here to explain the science!

Birb have VERY LARGE EYE in skull. Very good for seeing! But not space for muscle, birb cannot move eye. For mammal to make steady image, keep focus on single thing, always moving eye! Tiny movements, sometimes not even know. But birb cannot make tiny movements! So, birb must move whole head. And that is why the birb can keep steady the head when the body is amovering!

Thank you for listening to a science

I’m crying

That was the greatest scientific explanation I have ever read

I got a major surprise last week - my photo of Gordon won the Peregrine Fund annual photo contest! I never expected it to win, so I’m very very thankful. For those who may not know, The Peregrine Fund is an organization doing great work helping birds of prey all over the world. They helped bring the peregrines back when DDT was wiping them out, and they’re researching the problems our American kestrels are having now. Go check them out @ 🐤✨🐦✨ #igbirds #bird #owl #greathornedowl
