Avian And Attributes – Zoologist
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.” (John 1:1-3 KJV)
Avian and Attributes – Zoologist
ZOOLOGIST, n. [from zoology.] One who is well versed in the natural history of animals, or who describes animals.
[Webster’s Dictionary of American English (1828)]
The Lord Jesus Christ, the Creator of all that is in the world, truly was the first Zoologist. The Lord was definitely well versed in the animals, especially the birds. He knows every part of them and has an understanding of every function that He created in them. Most of all, He cares about each of them, as He does us. [Lee]
“Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father.” (Matthew 10:29 KJV)
The Zone-tailed Hawk (Buteo albonotatus) is a medium-sized hawk of warm, dry parts of the Americas. It is somewhat similar in plumage and flight style to a common scavenger, the turkey vulture, and may benefit from being able to blend into groups of vultures. It feeds on small vertebrates of all kinds (other than fish), including various small mammals and birds.
Zone-tailed hawks range from parts of southern Arizona, New Mexico, and western Texas almost throughout inland Mexico and the central portions of Central America down into eastern Colombia, Ecuador and, more sporadically, into Peru, southern Brazil, Paraguay, Bolivia, and northern Argentina.
Zone-tailed hawks can adapt to various habitats across their broad range, including both closed and open ones and wet and dry ones. Often, the largest numbers are found in rocky areas with access to water. They often reside in coniferous or pine-oak forests as well as timbered canyonland, hilly riverine woods, dry open boscage and scrub, humid forests and overgrown marshes. They may forage over ranches and even semi-desert, but always need at least scattered tree thickets for nesting. They may be distributed in elevation from sea-level to 3,000 m (9,800 ft), though are mainly found below 1,500 m (4,900 ft) in the north and below 500 m (1,600 ft) in the southern reaches of the breeding range.
*** This is the second time through some alphabetical Attributes of God. First time through I tried to use the last name of a bird alphabetically, and then this second time through, the first name of the bird was used. We trust you enjoyed this series. For now, another plan is in the works. Stay Tuned!!***
Birds whose first name starts with “Z”
