Tawny Owl's Visit

Tawny owls have been feeding from a bird table outside my kitchen window for four years and this year is the second year they have brought all their chicks along with them.
There are two adults and five chicks at the moment and when they all visit together it is a real treat for visitors.
After each owl safari everybody piled into the kitchen to watch them.
Although tawny owls are Britain's most common owl, they are rarely seen at close quarters; acting naturally.Here three chicks are waiting patiently by the boundary fence.


  1. Sweet! What do you feed them?

    Isn't that one of the adults in the middle?


  2. Day old male chicks - the by-product of the egg industry.
