  • Mutual trust and respect. Freddie has absolutely no worries with me touching him and his feet. This kind if relationship is important to ensure I can regularly carry out health checks, clean his feet and change his equipment without causing distress.

  • Spent the morning watching Griffon Vultures on the thermals. We’ve been spotting Black Kites, Buzzards and Kestrels too. I’m like a kid on Christmas 😂

  • Two more photos showing a fraction of the 3,070 Broad-winged Hawks (Buteo platypterus) myself and an #awesome crew of new and longtime volunteers counted today. So fortunate to be able to witness this phenomenal event as part of my work (it definitely helps make up for the days of less than ten birds). #Fieldwork .
Check out my last two posts for a video and more photos!

#Factoid: Broad-winged hawks are the only true #raptors in eastern North America known to migrate in large #kettles as seen here.

  • Freddie does not like to share! He won’t waste a bit his rat, he eats the fur, bones and organs, anything that can’t be digested is brought back up in a pellet.

  • Looks like somebody enjoyed their rat. The bulge on Freddie’s chest is his ‘crop’. The crop is basically a storage area for food to allow him to ingest large quantities on food in a short space of time. This is vital for the survival of birds of prey in the wild as they are at their most vulnerable when on a kill but must utilise every meal.

  • Working in pest control means that we can be flying in some pretty dangerous environments. Freddie was trained on site around moving lorries and cranes with loud noises, so he is very relaxed and performs perfectly when we visit.

  • It's been over a year since I started this drawing of a Cooper's Hawk. I found it yesterday while doing a little organizing and decided to finish it (swipe). Photograph taken by W Donald Newton.
