Secretarybird in Rietvlei Nature Reserve, South Africa
Meet the secretarybird, but dont be fooled with the aid of its administrative name. This four-foot-tall bird of prey is a force to be reckoned with. The South African species is understood for its eagle-like frame and effective, crane-like legs, which it makes use of to stamp on its prey until it is able to be swallowed whole. Research has proven that the secretarybird can stamp with a pressure of as much as five instances its own weight. The fierce hen receives its call from its precise headgearthe black feathers that protrude from its head are stated to resemble old-fashioned quill pens caught behind a creator or secretarys ear. If all of us has the self assurance to pull off this look, its the secretarybird.
