National Geographic Kids Everything Birds of Prey: Swoop in for Seriously Fierce Photos and Amazing Info
Birds of prey eat other birds, fish and small mammals. They are falcons, owls and hawks. Vultures and eagles eat dead things. Their beaks and talons are sharp. They have great eyesight. Harpy eagles have the strongest claws. (I didn’t know talons could crunch bones.) I believe birds descended from dinosaurs. Storks grab frogs. (I never knew that.) There are four hundred fifty birds of prey. That’s a lot of birds of prey! The two groups of owls look different. Some birds of prey are national birds. Falcons reuse nests from other birds. My favorite bird in the “Photo Gallery” is the Egyptian vulture. (I don’t want to be a falconer. I’d like to be a falcon.) People use puppets to make baby birds think that’s their mommy – instead of humans. I got all the answers right in the “Fact or Fiction” section. My bird personality is a cross between an owl and a vulture. I like the photographs. If I could be a bird of prey, I’d be a California condor. I learned a few new things from the book, like why people think owls are wise. Do they know everything about these birds? My answer is no! The picture labeled “turkey vulture” is wrong. It’s a black vulture.
