Feb 18, 2012: Owlet being fed

At the Schuylkill Center they have a wildlife rehabilitation clinic for wild animals in trouble, and I assume this is one such case, as I have no further information on the image.

But as we know, all baby beasts are cute... except for owls. Owls are assholes, and baby owls are grumpy even when getting a free meal of their favorite meats.

I never ate an owl, but when I was in the Azores I went to a small restaurant in the hills on one of the small islands and had an entree that was described to me as "little birds" (My Portuguese consists of Obrigado) So I ate a plateful of what might have been sparrows or grackles, battered and fried. No feet or beaks. Sort like avian sardines.

Quail can be a bit like that.
Sounds like your birds were larger though.

I'm not a bird expert. They were tiny, maybe the size of two walnuts end to end at the most, and not much fatter around.

NOT quail.
Canaries :)

I didn't open this thread yesterday because I thought it might make me vomit.

I'm glad i didn't. It would have.

I found a baby owl when I was a kid. We kept it for a few days before giving it to a professional.

Pretty cute. Like two white weeples stacked.

ZenGum 02-18-2012 11:41 PM

Ow-let me alone!

Sundae 02-19-2012 06:13 AM

Weeples? Sounds tearful.
