Baroo? [shifty eyes]


Melanie D., that is some SERIOUS baroo action.

Why do I feel like I'm being checked-out? Am I the DAILY PREY? This is a
magnificent bird, but how big is he? As a small dog,I weigh about 18 pounds...I feel as though
birdie is figuring out my
Nutritional Content...

Ohdear. Laughing up a storm over this one. My chiropractor says that after several dozen more visits I may be almost that flexible, but ... {shakes head}.

Meanwhile, the only sillier raptor pose I've ever seen is when the redtail hawks (mom, dad and fledgling) took a good serious wallow in the shallow pool we had out back a few years ago.

This lil guy is so cute!! He'd prolly tear my eyes out, but still.....so cute!! Baroo!!

 |  Apr 17, 2008 at 10:10 PM

LOL! Yeah I agree - his feather pants are tres flashy! Hee! Oh, I just love raptors. I really do.

 |  Apr 17, 2008 at 10:12 PM

I wish I could do that without turning myself into a statistic!

 |  Apr 17, 2008 at 10:15 PM

Ok, now THAT is the absolute EPITOMY of BAROO!

 |  Apr 17, 2008 at 10:36 PM

The world makes more sense upside down.

That bird could put the "ORLY" owl to shame. 0_o

 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 12:26 AM

@ Subhangi-
Bird-a-loons...That's my vote..it's perfect!

"LOOK at the widdle fluffy PANTZZZZZ..."

 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 12:42 AM

Well to help preserve the ultimate cutness of this picture I can tell you that this is a Male Kestrel, which is a kind of falcon. They are very small and gorgeous. Google some images, they are way more colorful than any other raptor (only the males though, which is as it should be) ;-p

They can also see the reflected ultra-violet light from Vole-pee... As an aside. lol ;)

 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 01:20 AM

@Subhangi: LOL!!! Personally, I like RAPTORPANTZ!!!

And thanks, Arachnophile! I know virtually nothing about raptors/big birds *hangs head*

 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 01:56 AM

AWh, that's okay Gail. You could fill a large library with everything I DON'T know about... doing my taxes, balancing a cheque book, remembering any date of, well, anything. :D

 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 02:19 AM

It's trying to fool us into thinking it's an owl!

"See? I can rotate my head 360 degree...agh! Ow! What do you mean I'm doing it in the wrong direction?!":D

That is a most cute and rather curious youngster!

 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 04:29 AM

I knew raptors were beautiful. I didn't realize how cute they could be.

I'm not really into birds (I had a bad experience a few weeks ago in a WalMart parking lot with a wild flock of Jonathan Livingstons *shudders @ the recollection* it was nothing short of a Hitchcock/Poe collaboration)...but this lil guy is haute couture with his feathery capris. Just in time for the spring, I'd say!



P.S. Thank you Arachnophile (*shudders @ the name* as I think of my severe phobia of creatures with more than 4-legs) for the information. Very interestingk!!

 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 04:45 AM


"haute couture with his feathery capris" LOLOL!!

Somewhere Christian Siriano is smiling.

He's a fierce, fabulous, flawless falcon. (I know he's not really a falcon, but kestrel just doesn't go now, does it?)

 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 04:49 AM

Has nobody said "barWHOOO?"

 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 05:08 AM

We concede those to YOU, Teho! *giggles*

 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 05:10 AM

Aw! Yay! I love birds! MORE BIRDIES!!! BIRDIE NUM NUM!

Yes, my name is really Cricket
 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 05:40 AM

I would LOVE to know what he's looking at!

Very cool!

 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 05:43 AM

He's trying to peek up your dress. Naughty boy!

 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 05:49 AM

Hawk couture.

Hon Glad
 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 06:18 AM

I love him. A step beyond the "Xcuse me WTF r u doin" cat. ;)

 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 06:19 AM

Hawk couture pantaloons.

Hon Glad
 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 06:19 AM

oh, da pants.

 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 06:39 AM

@kris "I would LOVE to know what he's looking at!"

he's looking at the camera, silly! :)

 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 07:03 AM

I saw this guy at ICanHazCheezburger except with a caption all over him. I couldn't help but think how adorable he would be without the caption. <3

 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 07:08 AM

He's practicing Raptorous Yoga to get the kinks out of his neck. In through the beak, and out through the beak. Ahhh...

 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 07:43 AM

wow. baroomeister indeed.

someone answer his questions, pronto!

 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 07:55 AM

...puts all the other Baroos to shame!!

 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 07:56 AM


 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 08:13 AM

@Ashagato - Well, if he's looking at the camera, clearly he's unfamiliar with what it is!!!
Guess no one sent home a notice to tell him it was picture day that day.

 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 08:15 AM

Warning: science content!

He's truned his head like that because he wants to see what's above him. Most birds of prey have a very uneven distribution of photoreceptors in their eyes.

As a result, they see things below them with amazing clarity but have a bit more trouble seeing things that are above them.

They turn their heads upside-down to get a good look up.

EXTREME Baroo!!!!

 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 09:29 AM

No matter how I look I can't think of this as "cute", it's surely beautiful instead. Or .. awesome. Or something. Gorgeous.

He is a falcon - a kestrel is a type of falcon, like a merlin or a peregrine. And a falcon is a type of a raptor! Love these little guys.

 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 09:58 AM

Oh, Oh, Oh!!! That just MADE my day! ;)

 |  Apr 18, 2008 at 10:36 AM

Serious baroo is freaking serious. Seriously people. It's serious business...
