Apparently falcons can fly so fast they can decapitate ducks. They like to kill their prey by hitting them really hard with their chest.
They appear so soft and fuzzy, because they are. This helps them fly without making a sound.
These guys have a great sense of smell. Their stomach acid is so strong it can kill rabies in an animal it just ate. Also, it pees down its leg to keep cool and clean.
Like the eagle, the hawks is another raptor bird. They said that he recently auditioned for a commercial, but lost to one of their other hawks, and hasn't been the same since.
There was a birds in motion show. This is the bald eagle. Bald eagles don't get their bald appearance until age 4-5, so this guy hasn't quite gotten there yet. He's a working bird. He works at the airport!
