The spotlight of the run was discovering a child owl in the course of the path. Once I noticed the owl, two huge owls flew overhead and landed on timber close by. At first I assumed possibly it was a smaller owl who was attacked by the larger two. It didn’t appear damage so I then realized it was in all probability a child. It was SO cute!
I known as The Heart for Wildlife to report it they usually stated they might swing by to test it out to ensure it was okay. If it was a child, the mother and father would proceed to feed it and look after it even when it fell out of the nest too quickly.
