My favourites?

Thursday, September 25, 2014

I have many favourites at the minute... My MacBook, Snapchat, History.

Though today, I'm going to be talking about my favourite types of Birds of Prey. I have a fondness of  Barn Owls and Snowy Owls, as they are two of my lovely birdies. I also have a big attraction to Falcons! I love them so much it's unbelievable, the Peregrines, who's speed fascinates me, and the wonderful range of Gyr/Saker falcons. 

We had a Gyr/Pere/Saker Falcon called Bluefoot, a Lanner Falcon called Nickel and a Saker Falcon called Maverick. Though I loved them all lots, it was hard to keep all the birds and so we unfortunately had to cut down. We currently have a Gyr/Saker Falcon called Jaroody, who is stunning. He is a lovely little chap, however can turn quite quickly, but when he's lovely, he's gorgeous. Although, he does happen to hate our big Golden Retriever, Jester.

I also love Eagles. I love that they are so big, regal and majestic. It's amazing to see them fly. I just love the White Tailed Sea Eagle, Golden Eagle, Tawney Eagle and the Chilean Blue Eagle. They are wonderful birds, but unfortunately they are just too big! It would take a lot of time and management to be able to keep one, and I just don't have much of either of them at the minute.

Falcons and Eagles have always had my interest but recently I have become more inclined to Owls. I don't know why, but I love them more than I love most things. 

There are the obvious favourites: Barn Owl, Snowy Owl, Little Owl, Tawny Owl, European Eagle Owl.

But then there are all the other ones that just amaze me. I am in love with the Asian Brown Wood Owl, it is such a gorgeous owl that I just want 100 of them. I am also in love with the Spectacled Owl. The big yellow eyes in the big white rings around the eyes. I also love these birds because they are quite big birds, making them more appealing to me.

I don't just love big birds, I also love the small little ones. I love our White Faced Scops Owl, Yoda, or as I call her 'Baba'. They have huge yellow/orange eyes that look too big for their face, and they contrast well with the grey and white feathers. I am also totally in love with Burrowing Owls, the 'Little Owl on stilts'. They are adorable, and surprisingly fast!!
