Trip to Utica: Different Species of Birds

The blue-gray winged Castro is a male, and the brown winged Castro is a female bird. Another bird that was very beautiful was from Africa, he was a hawk but was black in color with red feet, and you could distinguish his mood by the color on his feet. If this bird became frightened, his feet would turn slightly pinkish in color, but if the bird was relaxed and comfortable, his feet would remain red, he mainly hunts snakes. Another bird of prey was the owl, where I found out that the little feathers sticking out on top of its head were not ears UT rather eyebrows.

The owl has very good night vision and hunts mice and other critters, but she is not as wise as it is mentioned in the story books. Another bird related to the owl family was white and smaller in size, he looked like the owl, but had no eyebrow feathers on top of his head, and he has the best hearing out of all the birds. He could hear a mouse walking, a mile distance away. The bird that was the most memorable to me, was the vulture bird. I have never seen a vulture bird before and he is unique, because he only eats dead flesh.

The vulture bird has an interesting way of fighting the enemy off. He waits for a meal about three to four days, when he finally gets to eat the dead animal he eats so much, that after he Is done eating he cannot fly away, by this time an enemy can spot the vulture and decide to attack, but all off sudden the vulture can throw up on Its enemy from all the stress and by then have everything out of the system and fly away. This bird has also a unique beak, It Is made of bone, and his nostrils are reddish. He Is the only en with a beak developed from bone.

Another bird that brings back so much Joy Is the American eagle, the symbol of our nation. This bird seemed to have a lot of pride once he saw the audience, he automatically had his wings out and stood very comfortably. The eagle grew up In the wild but was saved from a flood and he caught pneumonia, but now the bird has healed and lives with the people who take care of birds. Usually the eagle lives somewhere from 20-25 years of age In the wild, but with the special care, this eagle might live to around 50 years. And he seems Like a heavy bird, but his weight Is only 12 pounds.

So I had a nice time getting to know a few of the birds of prey and I was glad that I was able to see the birds live, because there Is never an opportunity that comes often as this. I was glad to learn so much about these birds. Interesting way fighting the enemy off.
