I took Ollie out of the mews yesterday for the first time in a couple weeks and he was just as adorable and cuddly as ever! This bird’s personality amazes me.

Why aren’t you wearing a glove?

Because it’s a kestrel. He’s tiny. Gloves are not necessary. I only use the glove with him during training or feeding. 

When I lived on the 19th story of an apartment building on the upper West Side, I discovered that if I remained vigilant, I could spot the kestrel that hunted our area perched on the building across the street or cattycorner from us.  It gave a boost to my writing time whenever I saw him, or any of our local raptors!

He’s such a fluffy darling ball of murder.

she was dressed modestly to begin with though wtf

But obviously girl knees are so much more psychologically problematic to a developing adolescent than watching adults wield and flex the ability to humiliate powerless children with the excuse that the knees of children are inherently sexually stimulating

They do this to the boys with low-sagging jeans too, i’m sure.

Oh but of course

Wolves fighting for dominance as a “thing” came from observation of captive packs.  Observation of genuinely wild packs has revealed that it is not, in fact, a “thing.”

Y’hear that, ya shitty modern werewolf writers?

hear that, self-styled “alpha males”?

They weren’t even captive packs, they were a bunch of unrelated wolves shoved together in too-small a space.

So if you’re an ‘alpha wolf’ then you are, in point of fact, not the noble, fierce and imposing leader of a group who respects you, but a scared wild creature with no social support frantically lashing out at strangers to try and gain some semblance of control over a fundamentally uncontrollable environment?

Huh.

That would explain a few things.
