The Barn Owl (tyto alba)
This time a rather 'butter fingered' or more properly perhaps 'butter beaked' Barn Owl who seemed to be having difficulties co-ordinating the transfer of his lunch from the trunk to his beak. He managed in the end. !!
The bird is, of course, a captive creature, part of a collection, and obviously his food has to be provided for him. I can assure you all that the mouse was well and truly dead before being given to him.
Hope you will enjoy viewing.
Delighted once again and of course most appreciative for all the c/c;s given to the Vulture and particular thanks are due to Steve (Sparrowhawk) for the UA.
