How to take selfies with a bald eagle

biomorphosis:

Kestrel is a small falcon known for its hovering flight. They also have the extraordinary ability to keep their head totally still, even in strong winds. This allows them to pinpoint and catch small mammals by sight alone.

Isis the peregrine was quite the show off at our event this weekend. You’d think she could understand all of the compliments visitors to our booth were paying her.

Isis, our educational peregrine did not enjoy being out in the snow storm today rather than her nice heated mews.
But we have a program this weekend and she needs to be on her best behavior!

I had to tube feed this Cooper’s hawk today, and when I put him back in his tub he flipped onto his back and made this face at me.

Dear falconry/birder/wildlife tumblr:

This morning I added a juvenile (assumed) male red tail to a flight cage which already houses an adult female and a juvenile female. All three are rehab birds who we’ll be over-wintering.

I stuck around for about twenty minutes to make sure they weren’t fighting, and the adult wasn’t showing any signs of aggression - just sitting on a perch on the other side of the enclosure looking at the newbie.

But then she hopped down to the ground and started to stare him down. He immediately ducked his head, mantled his wings, and tucked his legs. She circled him and then flew back up to her perch and he made a couple of chirping noises and then perched on the opposite end.

So my question is, is that just run of the mill appeasement behavior? Or is it something I need to be concerned about? We combine red tails fairly regularly after they’ve been quarantined, and we’ve never had problems. I checked in on these guys a few times throughout the day, and there are no signs that they’ve been fighting or anything, but I’ve never seen them behave like that.

Thoughts?
