Aug 6, 2019: Little Owl

A Little Owl is little, only about seven inches tall, so it's a battle to pull this worm from the ground to feed her chicks.


Andy Rouse photo

Quote:
So with three chicks back at the nest, this normally nocturnal Little Owl made a daytime outing to rustle up dinner but at just 7in tall, she faced something of a fight to get it home. She spent several minutes unsuccessfully wrestling an earthworm from a field near Cardiff. Eventually, however, her hard work was rewarded and she whisked the unfortunate creature home to her chicks, who were nesting in a nearby dry stone wall.

Maybe it's just all of those Giants in Cardiff that make the Little Owl seem so little.
(different continent, I know, but I've always liked the Cardiff Giant story)

This story is a bit of a s-t-r-e-t-c-h- if you ask me....

Having seen the Cardiff Giant, (currently residing in Cooperstown NY) I can tell you that this owls are much more palpable. Plus, there travel sized, for your snacking convenience!

That's good !

Off the subject: I saw "Clash of the Titans" last night. The owl only appeared once and I am kind of disappointed. It also looks like the owl from the original!
I am glad to see this iotd as I have had owls on the brain.
