Gardener at Heart - Book Two

Talking Charades #8

I am lightning in your hands.

A flash arcs down,

Strikes with a splitting crack,

And thunder rumble-tumbles out to each side.

If you love me, I get extremely intelligent.

And did you know,

My great-great-granddaddy was a bird of prey?

What am I?
