    Caring for Birds of Prey

    If you want to get a bird of prey, here are the guidelines for caring for such an animal. As you may know, even taking care for domesticated birds, such as a parrot, can be very different from animal to animal. This also applies for birds of prey; depending on the species of bird you would like to care for, it may alter the amount of food or the space they will need, for example.

    You will need a large area to keep your bird of prey. An aviary would be ideal. This space will need to be big enough for your bird to fly around comfortably (double the wingspan of the bird). Make sure the area is securely blocked off using wood and wire mesh. This wire mesh is important because this means the enclosure will still be ‘open’. Also include a perch so your bird is able to sit somewhere, and any other accessories that your bird may like without cluttering the area. Wood is a good material for a perch. Try to position the cage where is has some protection so it is able to defend your bird from all types of weather.

    When feeding your bird of prey you want to keep it as close to the food the bird would eat in the wild as possible. This includes lots of meat to make sure the bird is getting a good source of protein.

    When providing drink for your bird, it is very simple. All you will need to do is make sure you supply a fresh bowl of water at least once a day to keep him hydrated.

    If you encounter any health problems with your bird, you are advised to see an expert or a vet to ensure the bird is treated appropriately and effectively.
