this ‘flying’ thing…

Always fun to see young birds find their wings, and take to the skies!

Especially when they’re tiny and cute, like the two burrowing owl chicks which hatched at the beginning of July in the Burren Birds of Prey centre:

this is just to show you how small these fellas are – they’re little bumblebees once they take off!

Fly… how? Like … this?


Yeah, that works! :)

the real fun starts now, we’re training these two for display duties!

    Just LOVE your photographs: they are truly stunning!

  3. Hey, if you can burrow, what’s the point in flying… ;)

  4. great photos, Simone!

      the feet belong to James! The Owlets are coming along great, we’ve started training them now, they’re so much fun. :)
