While courting, the male may pass food to the female while in flight. The female will fly below the male then pull up towards him to grab the food with her talons in a fantastic aerial display. How do falcons differ from hawks? Falcons differ from hawks because falcons do not have a brow ridge to keep sunlight out of their eyes.
Instead falcons have dark areas below their eyes often called a mustache. Falcons also have pointed boom-a-rang shaped wings which are excellent at allowing the bird to accelerate quickly through the air in short bursts. Pictured is an American Kestrel, the smallest and most common falcon in North America. American kestrels can fly between miles per hour and often catches prey, like dragonflies or smaller birds mid air! Did you guess the peregrine falcon? If you did, you are correct! People often think cheetahs are the fastest animal on earth.
Although cheetahs are the fastest land animal running at speeds up to 75mph, Peregrine falcons are the fastest animal on our planet. Peregrine falcons can fly at speeds of over mph. Even more impressive, these birds fly straight into their prey at these speeds, killing their meal instantly.
Pictured is Horus, our peregrine falcon. Why is this? As you can imagine, a bird flying at speeds over mph really needs to know how far away or close something is to be able to survive on their own. Osprey are large raptors who mostly eat fish. Unlike bald eagles who swiftly fly over a body of water to gracefully snatch out a fish, osprey dive talons first into the water to catch a fish.
Their powerful wings have adapted to pull themselves quickly out of the water with fish in tow. When visiting CuriOdyssey, keep your eyes and ears open. When most people think of owls, they think of an intelligent bird who wakes and hunts in the night. Their small skull is taken up mostly by their large eyes, leaving little space for much else including their brain. Burrowing owls, like the one pictured here are diurnal, meaning they are awake and hunt during the day.

Burrowing owls live in holes on the ground called burrows, where they can hide from predators. Come to CuriOdyssey and meet our burrowing owls Woody and Pigwidgeon in our walk-through aviary. The great horned owl is one of the most recognizable owls in the United States. They are a fierce raptor with almost silent flight. Being nocturnal, they fly around at night in search of prey.
Their ear holes are asymmetrical, one pointing up while the other points down. Great horned owls can also turn their heads degrees. Great horned owls are strong, hardy birds known to take sleeping hawks from their nests, or skunks off the ground. Imagine a Bald eagle in the wild. What comes to mind?
Different Types of Birds of Prey
Do you imagine the bird flying low over a lake with a fish in its talons, maybe in Alaska? Bald eagles eat more than just fish. They have been observed catching prey like ground squirrels right here in the Bay Area. A couple years ago a juvenile Bald eagle was spotted right here at Coyote Point Park, until it was chased away by ravens.
Vultures and Condors are vital to keeping our wild areas clean and help stop the spread of diseases. Her family was gunned down by a rival mob organization. Its possible that this was mentioned in an alternate comic book timeline. They've tamed down her outfit like the Xmen movie to make it less "comical" and more "real world". Dinah Lance was the Black Canary, who is the third member. The Dinah Lance in the tv series is a bit young.
