Day 319 / 365

What birds spend all their time on their knees?

Birds of prey!

Interesting Fact: Birds are amazingly adapted for life in the air. The Red-tailed Hawk is one of the largest birds you’ll see in North America, yet even the biggest females weigh in at only about 3 pounds. A similar-sized small dog might weigh 10 times that.

  2. You can see them all the time in the trees beside many highways looking for lunch in the cut grass beside the road. Unfortunately, many are hit by cars or trucks as they swoop in to low:(

  3. I can sure relate to your post title today and am wondering whether your eagle is accepting passengers? We had a stressful week last week and a huge storm and then Paris. Flying would be fabulous!

    • It is a shame what is happening to this world. I would love to just fly away from all the worries as well. All we can do is stay positive and be happy, hopefully if everyone is like that the positive energy will rub off on the bad people. Thank you very much for stopping by and sharing your thoughts. πŸ™‚
