What are the birds of prey?

Assalamu alaikum my dear readers!

I am very sorry that I haven’t been posting for nearly a month. I have been extremely busy these days and when I did have time I would always not know what to write about. I will be very busy this coming week too. As my mum’s friend needs us to look after her two small children for the week. But I’ll try to post as much as I can Inshallah. Well, I just wanted to give you another “Tell Me What” post to keep you busy for now.

Here goes! Bismillah:

The birds that feed on other animals are called the birds of prey. Some of the most common predators are eagles, hawks, vultures, falcons, kestrels and buzzards. Most birds of prey are strong fliers with sharp eyes, hooked beaks and powerful talons or claws. These birds usually swallow big chunks of food.

The birds of prey attack in several ways. The kestrel hunts by hovering over an open ground and, then, pouncing upon it’s prey before it can escape. Birds of prey have a very good eyesight. As they hover many metres above the ground, they can detect the slightest movement of a mouse in the grass below. The falcon stoops or dives its head first at its prey and catches it in it’s claws. Vultures are the biggest birds of prey. They do not hunt. Rather, they feed on carrion ( dead animals ). The peregrine falcon while stopping on its prey can reach up speeds of 350 km/hr.

And that is the end! This topic has quite a lot of interesting facts about birds doesn’t it? Here is a quick small fact for you:
The palm nut  vulture is the only vegetarian bird of prey and it feeds on oil nuts.

I really hope you enjoyed this post!
And I was thinking, if you can’t find this book in the library or shop, you probably read my posts.
And if there is something that you really want to know/you are interested in, then please tell me what it is in the comment section below and Inshallah I will do a post about it! Because my book has nearly everything.

There are six sections:

  1. Human body,
  2. Animal world,
  3. Plant Kingdom,
  4. Amazing earth,
  5. Science and technology, and
  6. General knowledge.

I hope that you will comment Inshallah. And I thank you for reading my post!
See you on my next post Inshallah!

What is a KALEIDOSCOPE?

Assalamu alaikum warahmtaulahi wabarakatu!

As you probably guessed already this is another post about my “Tell me what” book! What is a kaleidoscope is a very interesting topic I wanted to share with you. If you love different patterns and colors then you’ll love this post inshallah! Soooo, here goes!

A kaleidoscope resembles a short telescope with a rotating end-piece. When you look through a kaleidoscope, you will see a colourful, geometric pattern. Twisting the end-piece creates ever-changing, mesmerizing new patterns. A kaleidoscope consists of two or more mirrors laid lengthwise inside a tube. Colored beads, liquid-filled ampules or other small objects reside in the larger end of the tube.

The viewer looks in one end and light enters the other end, reflecting off the mirrors. Typically, there are two rectangular lengthways mirrors. Setting off the mirrors at 45 degrees creates eight duplicate images of the objects, six at 60 degrees and 4 as 90 degrees. As the tube is rotated, the tumbling of the colored objects presents the viewer with varying colors and patterns.

Any arbitrary pattern of objects shows up as a beautiful symmetric pattern because of the reflections in the mirrors. Some sources claim that the kaleidoscope was known to ancient Greece, but the Scottish inventor, David Brewster, is credited with it’s modern invention in 1816.

FACT:
A prism is a transparent optical element with flat, polished surfaces that refract light.
