Introducing Mystic the Barn Owl

This coming week, we will be adding to our falconry family with an 8-week old Barn Owl (Tyto alba).  We are very excited to have ‘Mystic’ join our family and grow in the great sport of falconry.

Spring Time Hatchling

Spring Time Hatchling

This past weekend I had the privilege to see a 16 day-old Eurasian Eagle-Owl.   Not only was I able to get a close-up view, I was able to hold him for a few minutes and get to feel what 554g of fluff feels like.  The owner confirmed it was a male owl, and was feeding him 60g three times a day. Food for a baby raptor such as this requires special attention to the details of their dietary requirements: stripped mice.   What a great experience!
