Not alone is she unusual, but she loves meeting new people and has even delivered rings at weddings… she's a little star.

Odin

Being the only social birds of prey that hunt in packs like wolves, they are both smart and agile, and a most thrilling Raptor to fly.

With her calm personality and her five foot wingspan, she is a true gentle giant.
