Birds of Prey

On Friday 5th February 2016 we had a visit from some birds of prey. There were two owls: a Barn Owl which we know is ‘nocturnal’ and a Eagle Owl which we learnt was ‘diurnal’. Their claws are called ‘talons’ which are designed for catching their prey.

Their wing feathers are specially adapted like fine combs to let the wind through so they can fly silently.

There was  also a falcon which wore a hood to make it think it was night time so it was calm and peaceful, a vulture, and an African Eagle that eats snakes.

Stay Safe on the Internet.
