Once upon a time, well six weeks ago approximately my daughter Terri, found on the second day in her new home two tiny little owls that had fallen from the roof of her apartment and by some miracle they survived the fall. On much googling for any information on how to look after them a box was found and lined with sticks and leaves, and the task of feeding began. They were both weighed and came in at 120g and 80g.
He is fed every four hours and everything he has eaten has been recorded must check what his weight is now and let you know later.
He has two names and nobody can decide which one to go for. He is known at the moment as Owly D or Owlexander Dumas (named after the Chateau) which one do you prefer?
Terri and Pete are now taking turns in trying to get him to fly by putting his meat onto string and getting him to chase it.
I took some shots of him yesterday and we all think he will be flying very soon, Pete has built him a fabulous box that he has put in a tree and I forgot to take a shot of that but will next time. I am hoping to get a few more shots and if lucky in flight. Would be wonderful if he continued to live at the Chateau but time will tell....
