Pound for pound, Barn Owls consume more rodents – often regarded as pests by humans – than possibly any other creature. ✿ We remind viewers that sometimes owlets may not survive - the parents will dispose of things in "The Owl Way" -viewer discretion is advised, this is nature and the "Owl way". ✿ ~ ✿ “Animals, like us, are living souls. They are not things. They are not objects. Neither are they human. Yet they mourn. They love. They dance. They suffer.

Dinner time - Horks - Flyabouts & UFO's

 Mel came through last night delivering three (3) treats one of which was a ROUS (Rodnet of Unusual Size) that Syd fed to the babies for 55 mins.

Another feat from the babies was that two of them had their first horks and are eating fur with their meat.
Im thinking the two were Maggie and Boomer..

Mel could you please turn to the camera once in awhile.
Same pose, different day! :-)
4 babies
Sydney went on two (2) flyabouts with the longest lasting from 11:22 - 11:55 pm

UFO returns twice last night.
