Watch Your Back! by KeldBach Watch Your Back! by KeldBach
Went to the Copenhagen Zoo to watch the daily training/demonstration of the birds of prey. Here it's a Spotted Eagle Owl (Bubo africanus) resting on the Falconer's hand, while keeping a watchful eye on me. Its eyes cannot move in the eye sockets, but instead it is able to turn its head 270° in either direction. See also:
