New digs

My baby short-eared owls have now moved outside into a large enough area for them to start flapping their wings. According to the books they should just about be fledged in one week and I wanted them to have the room to do so.

They are thriving, eating all on their own now so I don't have to spend time cutting up mice and handing them the pieces one by one. They now weigh 11.27 and 13.59 ounces and getting in hard feathers.

As you can see, they're cuter than most anything and my mask worked, they hiss and clack whenever I get near.

  1. It sounds like it is going to be another success! Love it that they now hiss you when you don't have the mask on.
