This picture is exactly what the title says. In February i visited a great place near Rotorua, where they are rehabilitating New Zealand Falcon. Most native NZ birds are endangered as they evolved with no natural predators, so when humans arrived with rats cats and other mammals, new zealands birds got nailed.
the place i visited is called Wingspan, and is dedicated to researching and conserving NZ's native raptors: falcon, morepork (little owl) and the australasian harrier hawk.
these taxidermised birds are the falcons prey, and are used for research.
Any comments would be appreciated.
