As most of you know, I am a wildlife carer.  The other day I got a call out for a bird rescue... Wouldn't believe it, it was an Australia Hobby (Little Falcon).  Beautiful bird.  It must've had a concussion cause this little girl was trying to hand feed it in a cardboard box (had seed, cabanossi, fruit, etc).

Was really cool getting to look after it for a couple of days.  I had to hand it on as I don't have a Raptors licence (can't keep it for more than 3 days).  I kicked myself when I realised I forgot to take pictures of it.  Aaaarrrrggggghhhhhh!

Damn was just at the zoo here the other day for the first time in a year or two and had forgotten that they have open air enclosures with raptors loose inside. Very cool to be a couple of feet away from some very un-afraid birds.

Yeah, the Little Falcon is very similar to a Kestrel.  Really a very beautiful bird.  Was cool to watch him tear up his meals.

Next year I plan to do the raptor course and get licensed to look after them.
