1-Ringo is a very picky eater, so Mom has to be sneaky and creative in finding ways to prepare fresh nutrients foods that he will eat.
2-Ringo's never met anyone he didn't like. He will sit on their shoulder and observe them quietly.
3-He's favorite thing is to play rough with his human companions.
4-His favorite foods are bananas, sweet potatoes, cantaloupe, coconut oil, and macadamia nuts. When Mom prepares food for him it has to contain some of these in order for him to eat it.
5-He is not treat motivated, so when we work with him, is is rewarded with praise and or a short playtime with his humans.
6-Ringo is like the energizer bunny, he can keep going, going, and going. Mom usually spends around 4-5 hours a day with him, and flying really helps to get him to unwind and give Mom a break!
7-Ringo gets 12 hours of darkness every night, and is usually quite until Mom uncovers his cage in the morning.
8-Ringo can whistle and say a few words, but never speaks a word when he's out of his cage.
9-Ringo has begun free flying, and appears to enjoy it more when he can fly with his feathered friends.
10-Whenever Ringo hears the garage door opening, he knows we've returned home, and will scream with excitement.
Levi did so great at the vet today! Unfortunately, he is missing the tips of his wings and he will never be able to fly. I can do stretching exercises for the wing that won't open fully, but the tendon may never have full mobility. Other than that he is very healthy! He was so calm the whole time and acted as if the whole visit was one big petting session. All of the vet techs came in to take pictures and give him some love 💕

There are more than 100 pairs of Northern Goshawks nesting in Berlin, but trying to capture a shot of them with an urban background is quite difficult. Sam patiently waited for hours to snap this photograph of a juvenile goshawk clutching a rat in front of a church spire.⠀
