Bake for 20-25 mins until risen and spongy. Cool on a rack. Beat the butter and icing sugar until smooth. Slice off the very tops of the cakes and cut each piece in half.

15 Amazing Facts About 15 Birds
From brilliantly colored hummingbirds to farting thrushes, birds are among the most beautiful and bizarre creatures on Earth. With over 9000 species, our fine feathered friends inhabit almost every inch of the planet, making their homes in the frozen expanses of Antarctica, the humid rainforests of South America, and every climate in between. Here are 15 amazing facts you might not know about 15 amazing bird species. 1. Ravens are great at mimicking human speech and sounds.
A.K.A.: Pigeon hawk Field marks: Dark, compact, pigeon-sized falcon, with pointed wings and a shortish tail. Heavily streaked below. Males have bluish backs; females and juveniles are brown. Flight behavior: Typically migrates alone. Occasionally soars, but typically flaps and glides while migrating. Strong, quick flight. Often dives on the Sanctuary’s owl decoy. Wingspan: 2'-2'3" Length: 9"-12" W-L ratio: 2.4:1 Weight: 4.5-8 oz Hawk Mountain Stats67-year annual average: 44 1992-2001: 127 Record year: 176 (2001) Best chance to see: Early October Longterm trends: Relatively stable through mid-1970s; increasing since the late 1970s. BitesMerlins belong to the family Falconidae, a group of 60 speciesof caracaras, falconets, pygmy falcons, forest-falcons, and falcons.Were once known as pigeon hawks because their flight resembles that of pigeons (Columbiformes).In medieval falconry, Merlins were used by ladies. Both Catherine the Great of Russia and Mary Queen of Scots flew Merlins.Have slightly larger wingspans than American Kestrels, and weigh up to three times as much as kestrels.In North America, juvenile Merlins occasionally migrate in loose flocks, sometimes together with Sharp-shinned Hawks.Each Merlin eats as many as 900 birds a year.Few live to be five years or more, in part because they often collide with cars, buildings, and trees.Sometimes feed on birds such as pigeons, which are twice their size.Larger raptors sometimes prey on Merlins.The number living in urban areas has increased substantially in the last 30 years.
