Falcons Trap Live Food For Later


In 2014, Abdeljebbar Qninba, a biologist at Mohammed V University in Rabat, discovered that on the island of Mogador off the coast of Morocco, falcons were capturing smaller birds, disabling them by plucking out their tail and wing feathers, and then wedging them into rocks to save for later.

It’s been known that birds of prey would occasionally save dead animals for later, but this was the first time any vertebrate non-human species has been recorded for stocking animals.

Smart.
