Could a Falcon eat a owl?

User Avatar
A falcon may eat a small owl, but this would not happen frequently because owls are nocturnal and falcons are diurnal (Daytime-active)

Do any eagles mate in the air?

User Avatar
No, Eagles do not mate while flying or falling in mid air. They mate usually standing in their nest, or on a tree limb. Eagles do preform aerial displays during their courtship. This is often confused with the act of mating while flying, or falling, since it can involve the birds locking their talons together and spinning in a free fall. Most of the aerial tumbling and other acrobatics is associated with their courtship displays. For more details, please see the sites listed below.

Does the peregrine falcon use camouflage?

User Avatar
No, it does not; camouflage is more typical of animals that don't move much, and since these birds fly a lot, there won't be much use for camouflage.

Can hypersonic aircraft fly faster than bullets?

User Avatar
Bullets flies at the top speed of Mach 3 but almost Mach 4. There are some planes that can fly much faster than bullets but bullets used to fly faster than most planes(aircraft). Hypersonic aircraft can fly up to Mach 9. So yes, hypersonic aircraft can fly much faster than bullets. If these hypersonic planes can fly faster than bullets, they can fly alot faster than missiles. Missiles also flies around Mach 3 but hypersonic planes don't fly at that kind of speed. The top speed that hypersonic planes is nearly Mach 10(almost 10 times faster than the speed of sound).

Asked in Falcons, Hawks, The Difference Between

What is the difference between hawk and falcon?

User Avatar
Falcons are smaller and faster. For example, the Peregrine Falcon is not very strong, but can reach incredible speeds that allow them to grab a small bird or mammal for lunch (such as a pigeon or rabbit). On the contrary, the Red Tailed Hawk is much more powerful and utilizes its talons to take out small mammals, other birds, fish, and the like. ) With regard to "falcons are a type of hawk" - Falcons (Falconidae) and hawks (Accipitridae) are genetically unrelated-- while hawks are related to eagles, falcons are more closely related to parrots and songbirds. Both are adapted for different prey and hunting styles. Falcons are primarily mid air hunters taking out quail, small ducks and pigeons although they will not turn down a rodent lunch. Hawks (such as the red tailed) are primarily ground hunters focusing more on fish, rodents and a variety of ground mammals. Hawks will take out other birds but are better adapted for ground prey. The most amazing difference is the the falcon's speed. Look up the "stoop" for details. Falcons have been recorded as diving in excess of 200 mph!

How expensive is falconry?

User Avatar
There is no exact answer to this question, it depends on your individual situation, where you live, and what type of bird you intend to work with. Are you skilled enough to make you own equipment? Do you have access to food sources for your bird? You will have to provide food for the bird during the training process and even after it begins to hunt. The testing and annual licensing will cost about $100.00 - $200.00 per yer. The minimum equipment you will need including a good scale will cost between $200.00 and $500.00 depending on if you intend to make or buy the equipment you will need. This includes perches, anklets, jesses, bells, leashes, hoods, gloves, lures, water bowls, equipment bags, etc.. Housing for the bird will probably be the most expensive item unless you intend to keep the bird inside your residence which can be done with some type of birds, but is impractical with others due to the mess they will make and the space needed. So if you need to build a hawk house (mews) that will add to your cost depending on if you already have a building to use or if you're going to build one yourself or have it built. You can figure that building an adequate mews will cost between $500.00 - $2,500.00 depending on whether you are going to build it yourself or have it constructed.

Asked in Falcons

Do falcons see more colors than humans?

User Avatar
I do not think so. We have a retina that can help us see much more color. Falcons can see some colors but only when they are hunting. They see their pray from the sky. In a nature show I saw that a Falcon can actually see the urine trail highlighted in bright yellow of a small animal. I know weried....
