2014—But I Don’t Like Chinese Food

Kate Marden of West Coast Falconry feeds a chunk of quail with a pair of chopsticks to 60 day old Enkidu (sort of rhymes with Inkydoo) her newest bird and a captive bred aplomado falcon, which is a medium sized American falcon native to the southwest. I fell in love with Enkidu at the Open House held by the California Foundation for Birds of Prey on Sunday. Enkidu has already grown to full size despite his youth, but he still exhibits that that sort of dumb Disney-esque look of a baby bird. After lunch, Enkidu settles down on handler Shawna’s arm for a nap.
