Tawny Owls

Here at work, we currently have some young Tawny Owls recuperating in our flight cage. The opportunity to take some photos of them was too good to miss really! So, armed with some dead mice, a colleague headed into the flight cage to distract them whilst I went in after him. We needn't have bothered, they were so intrugued by the camera that they just sat there twirling their heads at me!

  7. They are so pretty and you got some beautiful pictures of them. They look almost as curious about us as we do of them.
