Bingo the hobby and Jingo the lesser kestrel

Post by giantfoot_truck » Tue Jun 12, 2007 4:24 am

Hey everyone this is my two birds of prey I had when I was 7.5 years old, they live with us for 5 years and die when Im 12.5 years old.
They died from the twisted head disease, we took them to the vet and do everything we can to cure them, but its just no chance.

Here they are:

The lesser kestrel died first, and the hobby cured from the disease, but a year later he is affected again and go back to his best friend in heaven.


Dont mind about the cage, they are only inside the cage when at night(sleeping time), most of the time they are outside on their bird stand. But that was a long time ago.

:D Wow! They must of been interesting pets to have as a child. Very beautiful birds! Love their eyes.

You look like a cute kid! hehe.

Gosh, I love birds of prey. When road tripping through Central Australia I saw so many wedge tailed eagles and they just took my breath away! I have been up close to one and its amazing how stunning they are!

:D Lol! Thanks you two!

By the way that blue cage they are living in is the same cage used for the ringneck doves now, I descend it to the doves 4 years after their death. I cleaned and brushed the cage from the dirt and rust, it became as clean as before.

I dont want to dispose the cage, as it contain lots of memory and can be used for future bird.
