Birds of prey.


Recommended Posts

We went to a birds of prey show in a Germany castle which was great. They have two shows a day. They use different birds, each show there was two posters up telling what birds they where using and I took a photo of the wrong one. So I need help identifying some of them.

There was a Bald eagle and Harris hawks for sure. There was one vulture that sat on the top of a hill and would wait for one of the birds of prey to drop a treat (not sure what they were throwing.)then run/glide down the hill to get the treat then walk back up the hill.

It took them about ten minutes to catch the Bald eagle and after that they had trouble getting it inside.

What area of Germany? I was at a raptor show in Germany back in 2015 in a castle.

I just asked my mom and she said it was in the Hohenwerfen Castle in Werfen Austria. I don't know why I thought it was in Germany.

No way, I was at the same castle and the same show back in 2015. I didn't even have an eBird account back then. If I'd been a birder, my life list would already be past 500. Dang. Oh well, still pretty cool.

I personally don’t count captive birds on my life list, because they don’t count on eBird when they are still captive. You can count whatever you want for you life list, I’ve got no problem with that. But, are you saying that you would report the birds in the show on a checklist, or am I misinterpreting this?
