Birds are supposed to fly!!!
Tell that to this Short-tailed Hawk that hung motionless in the air. This hawk went into a "kiting" position with wings in a soaring profile, tail slightly down and head down looking for its prey. It stayed in this position for 60-75 seconds, then stooped ... diving on its prey at a very fast speed straight down.
