Secretary Bird

Another glorious day at the Hawk Conservancy in Weyhill, sun shone all day, it was almost (but not quite) too hot.

The secretary bird is unique in birds of prey. It is only found in the wild in Africa, it's the tallest of raptors, hunts snakes and is the only one of its genus.

How exciting to see it in action.

What an extraordinary bird! It almost looks like a Harry Potter creation! GIF didn’t work for me 😢

It's surprising that a bird this tall can get off the ground. It looks very gawky but quite beautiful at the same time.
