I do not understand why both of them have a large swelling below the throat. Moreover, they often stuck out their tongues like dogs probably due to the very hot weather. Author: peregrine Time: 11/08/2008 21:24 Subject: Bonelli's Eagles

I think the large bulges below the throat are simply because the birds have had a big meal and still have food in the crop Author: cywong Time: 14/08/2008 21:41
Thank you very much for answering my query. Author: HFCheung Time: 14/08/2008 22:02
I don't fully understand why birds sometimes have this big pouch on the throat. Sometimes I have doult whether this is really a meal, because the position do not exactly the stomach position. I could imagine that this is made of air.
