The secretary is a very peculiar bird that lives mainly in the north of Kenya, in the reserve of Shaba, and in Senegal.
The secretaries (Sagittarius serpentarius) are birds of prey and very specialized hunters.
The male is responsible for collecting the necessary material for the nest, branches, sticks ... and the female builds it. Nests are very big but these birds do not lay more than three eggs.
Another peculiarity that characterizes this bird is that it hunts in the ground unlike the others that do it in the air during the flight. They feed mainly on amphibians and reptiles, although it is also capable of eating poisonous snakes thanks to its powerful beak
