A new way to rehabilitate orphaned tawny owl chicks






I've set up a bit of a new idea of rehabilitating tawny owl chicks that are found either abandoned/ orphaned or mistakenly picked up by passers by. I've tried putting them into a wild tawny owl nest site that is just down the road from my gallery at Thixendale, North Yorkshire. It has been a tremendous success, tawny owls don't seem to be able to count and don't notice the additional chick. They go onto to raise them as their own 'wild' owl. Watch this video from the moment I put the chick in till it went onto fledge. See more on www.robertefuller.com
