Nice Q, Rosemary. :clap:

Spiricules enable the fish eagle to apply sufficient friction to a wet, and therefore slippery, fish so that it is able to hold it securely in its talons as it flies after swooping upon the prey.

Okay, Rosemary, let me see ...

How many blackbirds were baked in that pie?

Okay, no, that won't work - blackbirds are not found in Southern Africa; only black birds :? - so give me some time to conjure up a proper Q ... :thumbs_up:

What birds are fond of veld fires, using the advancing front of flames to trap fleeing animals?

Thanks for the answers Shushin, Rooies; but not what I'm looking for. These are larger birds.
