    They had a really unique and interesting ecosystem, the only mammals were bats and so birds filled most every other animal role, a real land of dinosaurs until the Maori arrived. It must have been quite a sight.

    As for extant species I appreciate the Cassowary, beautiful animals that will kick you in the throat if you bother them.
    Secretarybirds are also pretty interesting, I saw them featured in some nature documentary in my formative years and they really stuck with me.
    Locally the Red-tailed Hawks are a prevalent and welcome sight with so many rodents around.

    My sister works with birds and is particularly fond of owls and the California Condor

    Hummingbirds are coolest.
    Welcome to GEN-OT, have a seat, we'll introduce you to the 23-year-old who will lecture you about how Democrats didn't try hard enough to improve the ACA, and once that's all set up you'll be assigned a socialist who supported Ron Paul up to 2015 to harass you forever.

    Yeah, there's just something about them that really appeals to me. Really makes one realize why predatory birds are called "raptors".

    Peregrine Falcon.


    From wiki:

    ... the highest measured speed of a peregrine falcon is 389 km/h (242 mph).

    ...According to one study, it has the fastest visual processing speed of any animal tested so far, and can register discrete changes up to 129 Hz or cycles per second. Analogically, film is a series of still images projected onto a screen. Those still images need to be changing at roughly 24 frames per second before humans see them as fluid and no longer as individual, discrete pictures. The film would have to be refreshing at 129 frames per second before peregrine falcons stopped seeing flashing, still images and started seeing fluid motion.

    Not bad.

    Seriously guys, this forum would be a better place if everyone just stopped acknowledging Zenkai. It's just demeaning to everyone.

    love peregrine falcons. They're the mascot at the university I'm working on my bachelors degree at. Up in the city hall where it's at there's a Peregrine falcon that nests up in the clock tower every year. so they have a live camera feed up there during nesting season. So you can watch the eggs hatch and stuff. It's fun to watch.
