Re: The Rickeybird Scrapbook, 1984 - Updates

I am not a hater. I love the dang little rooster. All I want is for him to be happy. Here, let me prove it.

Okay, so tomorrow is National SAVE THE EAGLES Day. Lookie here, they need our help.
I'm going to see about getting the Rickeybird involved. Eagles seem like nice enough roomates for a Patagonian, right?
https://nationaldaycalendar.com/save...ay-january-10/
Maybe a mild-mannered hen what "nose how to party", eh, Bird?

Well, that mild manner Hen had 70 seconds in that video and never once removed the face of her handler or severed the handler's arm. What could go wrong?

Re: The Rickeybird Scrapbook, 1984 - Updates

The Eagles are safe!

But I'm a little worried about these Rickeybirds.
This video is only a few days old, so they may well be flying free even as we speak.
The birds are magnificent to watch, but I worry about predators and other hazards. I think this is somewhere in Southeast Asia...
So if the Rickeybird had a girlfriend, and was a free-roaming rooster, here's what he'd look like.

Re: The Rickeybird Scrapbook, 1984 - Updates

I agree Gail. It is very cool to watch, but how awful would it be if a hawk or eagle flew in and grabbed one. Especially, b/c they are alerting the predators while they're flying. Yikes

Re: The Rickeybird Scrapbook, 1984 - Updates

Mwach, birds of prey are the reason the parrots evolved to be such smashing fast and acrobatic flyers...

it is the captive-bred ones that are in real danger because they are not trained to look out for themselves and all the dangers.

Re: The Rickeybird Scrapbook, 1984 - Updates

Well speaking of eagles of the tropics.... This is yours truly at the Eagles Heritage Raptor Centre, at Beedelup Falls Western Australia, sometime in the last century when I used to work for a little (!) airline called Ansett and pre-digital cameras (!!). The red-backed sea-eagle (or Brahminy kite) in question was a rescue having been kept for years as a "pet" in a parrot cage way too small, and thankfully found his way into the caring hands of the wonderful people at the Raptor centre. The handler asked the audience who would like to have a go at holding him (pick me pick me pick me!) so I proceed to do probably totally the wrong thing and talk to him like I'm talking to my pet budgie but as you can see from the look of his sweet little face he is taking it all in very good humour ...(he probably gets that a lot from dumb tourists like me!) At least on that particular day he decided not to rip my face off.

Brahminy kites are regularly found in coastal Australia, India and South-east Asia... but hopefully there were none around when our friends Lilo and Bintang were on their excursion!





(PS the handler looked unimpressed didn't he!!)
