Merlin has an alter ego, I call her my hand demon. She doesn’t share food. One of the coolest thing about falcons is their hunting style. They knock their prey out of the sky from above, sometimes so hard that it kills it instantly. My one winged hand demon gets her prey delivered to her front door. I never get tipped though.

This hawk is picking up a piece of wood looking for insects.  I saw him fly out of the tree and to the ground.  I couldn’t see over the privacy fence, but I saw him thru the gaps.  I took photos through a gap in the privacy fence by backing up enough to zoom thru and focus.  I had no idea they ate worms and insects until I saw this happen and then read up on it.

Happy Father's Day to all the animal dads! 
Peregrine Falcons are fierce apex predators that can reach speeds of 250 miles per hour in a stoop dive, making them the fastest animal on the planet. The male peregrine falcon, called a tiercel, is smaller than his female counterpart and yet is a critical component to the success of the family. Both the tiercel and the falcon will take turns incubating their eggs throughout gestation. Once born, the male will typically take on much of the hunting and delivery of prey directly to the chicks in the nest. But, once the chicks start catching up to dad size wise, he'll take a back seat during feeding time as not to get hurt by the chicks. When it comes time to teach the babes how to hunt, dad is right back in the game teaching stoop dives and prey hand offs.

”All you have to do is throw it up.” The anticipation in the Raptors’ huddle just before they won their first title is great stuff. 🙌 (via @upclosehoops)

The gregarious Black Vulture (Coragyps atratus) roosts, feeds, and soars in groups, often mixed with turkey vultures. They also bully turkey vultures away from a carcass. Black Vultures will regurgitate when approached or disturbed, which assists in predator deterrence and helping them in taking flight by decreasing takeoff weight 🖤

OUCH!!! Always one sibling gets picked on. In reality they all do this stuff, practicing their skills with each other. Never get tired of observing these amazing little owls! #birdlovers #birds #naturephotography #birdsofprey #owlsofinstagram #arizonadesert #arizonahighways #nature #planetbirds

Who is the killer?
On average, what animal kills more people each year than any other....🤔
.

Sharks?🦈 No they only kill about 10 people
.
Wolves?🐺 No again only about 10
.
Lions?🦁 No about 100
.
Elephants?🐘 No also about 100
.
Hippos? ( no hippo emoji)  No about 500
.
Crocodile?🐊 No about 1,000
.
Tapeworm? ( no tapeworm emojis) No about 2,000
.
Round worm? ( again no emoji) No about 2,500
.
Freshwater snail?🐌 No about 10,000
.
Assasin bug? ( no emoji) No,chagas disease kills about 10,000
.
Tsetse fly? ( no emoji) No, sleeping sickness kills about 10,000
.
Dog? 🐶 No, rabies kills about 25,000 people a year
.
Snakes?🐍 No, about 50,000
.
Humans?🕺🏼 No, though we are the most destructive animal on the planet and we have developed effiecient ways to kill not only our own kind but also wildlife, we only kill about 475,000 of  each other each year, minus the world wars and other attrocities in the first half of the last century.

So what can possibly kill more people than people???
.
The winner is:
.
.
.
.  The Mosquito!!! ( again no mosquito emoji🙄). This tiny terror on average kills over 725,000 humans a year.  Mostly from malaria, but they also carry many other deadly diseases as well! There about about 3,500 different species of mosquito and they live on every continent except antarctica. They are the most numerous animal on the planet except termites and ants.  This little killer flying over my young falcon in the photo here also carries the West Nile Virus which is deadly to many animals especially certain species of birds including corvids, goshwaks,owls and gyr falcons. There are several vaccines available though none have proven %100 effective and sometimes the side affects are harmful.  I choose not to vaccinate.  I fear this every year more than any other raptor illness! Fortunately Utah and NY get very cold in winter and outbreaks are usually squashed by winter time. Not so in temperate and tropical climates.  Each year falconers throughout the USA lose birds to West Nile! .

Rainy day, I caught a break and the perrigan falcon came out to hunt. Unfortunately, my camera malfunctioned and I missed the opportunity to take photos of it skimming the river surface. A group of black headed gulls have taken over the river - apparently there is Bonaparte's gulls present I haven't seen them yet. Cedar waxwing. #nature #naturephotography #explore #water #bowriver #birds #peregrinefalcon #birdsofprey #gulls #bird

I’ve watched many raptors throughout recent years both individuals and families. I’ve never witnessed a single raptor successfully hunt and provide as much as this male Red Tailed Hawk does for his family. I’m in awe of the work, determination and persistence demonstrated by the fathers of the raptor world! #redtailedhawk #elite_raptors #springgrovecemetery #cincinnati #birdsofprey #birds_illife #animaelite #bestbirdshots #raptors #your_bird_capture #bird_brilliance #graysquirrel #animal_captures #bb_of_ig #canonwildlife #nature_brillance #your_best_birds

Any time I get the chance, I check up on the Ospreys nest at Heckscher. Turns out there's a family in there!

So Zack Snyder just posted this on Vero which is a scene (from the Snydercut) of a young Darkseid during the history lesson scene. This makes me even more excited to one day see the Snydercut because this alone is just awesome :(

'Here's lookin' at you, shweethart!' I'm calling this one 'Bogie'. If its a female, then 'Honey Bogart' works.  The beak is looking rather long now, which is one way to tell the gender of an eagle...longer is female.  It's been a few weeks since I last captured this one.  I'm thinking female. ;~) #nikon #nikond850 #nikonphotographers #tamron #tamron150600g2 #photographerloving…  #wildlifephotography #visittrivalley #visitcalifornia #traveldestinations_ig #travel #vacation #livermoreca #livermorecalifornia #livermoreopenspace #ddotraveling #travelinside__‬‬‬ #birdsofprey #birdsofpreyofinstagram #birdsofpreyphotography #eaglesofinstagram #ilovenature💚 #baldeagles #baldeaglesofinstagram #juvenilebaldeagle #delvalleregionalpark

A young Darkseid would have replaced Steppenwolf in the first invasion battle thousands of years ago on Earth where the forces of Apokolips fought the combined might of Amazons, Atlanteans, the tribes of Men, the Greek Gods and the Green Lantern protecting Earth’s sector. The sequence would have been much longer.

Austin has very light eyes for a Harris’s Hawk. I’ve only seen a couple others like his, whereas most that I’ve seen are much darker. He’s working on some really fun new behaviors like targeting to a laser! .
