This song teaches about the basic ecology and adaptations of birds of prey,all to a memorable sing-along tune.
Their name comes from a latin word
Describes a dinosaur and a bird
It means "to grab" that's what I heard
A big ol' Raptor Bird
Raptor Bird Raptor Bird it's a big ol' Raptor Bird
They have big eyes to see what they eat
They swoop right down and grab it with their feet
and rip it up with their curved, hooked beak
a big ol' Raptor Bird
Eagles, hawks, falcons and owls and osprey and harriers and kites, that's right! Eagles, hawks, falcons and owls and osprey and harriers and kites!
They eat rats and mice and lemmings and voles and squirrels and prairie dogs and skunks and bunnies and snakes and lizards and frogs and toads and turtles and bugs and fish...
moths and crickets and grasshoppers and cockles and mussels alive alive O porcupines and bad little kids and butterflies bats and birds....
if it is small and alive and abundant it must be food for a raptor bird
