I had one take out a bird in my lilac bushes as I was walking past not five feet from me. It knocked it right on the driveway, pounced on it, then took off with it. Pretty cool.
I got a predator Bird book a couple of weeks ago...


How much does a bank roll of nickles cost?

$5.00

As I recall... from rolling tons of coins:
Pennies = $1.00
Nickles = $5.00
Dimes = $10.00
Quarters = $25.00

It's easy to remember because each roll contains 100 coins.

Noooo, pennies are $1... aren't they? Just going from memory on that one, but I'd bet a roll of pennies on it. And I know quarters are ten bucks for a fact, cuz I have a roll of them at work.

Birds of prey are so cool. My vet is a falconer. He may have even founded one of the falconer organizations in America. He takes off every winter to hunt with a bird he's trained.

C'mon Selkie.

C'mon Selkie.
You can mail that roll of pennies to the American Cancer Society. It's 50 cents!

A mini juke box terminal. Ten cents a song, three for a quarter.
