Loki the Raven Falcon

Raven Loki

7 pics. Loki was rescued by Coda Falconry and took part in the Falconry Display during King Harold’s Day at Waltham Abbey.  Although presently still juvenile, Loki will eventually live for around sixty years, is highly intelligent, full of cheek and seems to like the attention of being a substitute falcon.

Cheek is why Loki is on a long tether (creance).  Loki likes doughnuts, other people’s doughnuts and not too fussy how they are obtained.  Ravens do have a dark reputation, but he is in fact a handsome fellow.  It’s just that they tend to hang around battlefields (well a birds got to eat) and otherwise nick any bauble that takes their fancy.

Raven Named Loki

This is Loki’s official portrait which shows his beautiful plumage (reminds me of the Norwegian Blue).
