Good Bird

A Thanksgiving meal made for a Snowy Owl. "Ghost" had a lot to be thankful for, 6 large mice and a chick. I got his attention when I went into his mew. I don't think he went to bed hungry.



Today it's back to training.






There was one bird that didn't make it though.

Well, you can't save them all, right?
:)
Looks like the turkey was good, considering how little is left!

And a yummy dinner for Ghost...Did you actually serve him his meal on a plate?

You starlted me with that, but thanks for the laugh. Looks like it was a happy day for all (but the rats).

What a feed for an owl, glad I'm not an
Alaskan mouse!

Susan - Turkey Was good even if I must say so myself. I feed Gost by hand, just carry out in dish.

Laura - mice, not rats. He makes to much of a mess with rats.

Duncan - Minnesota mice. We buy them in bulk frozen along with rats and quail for our other raptors. I doubt if Ghost knows where they come from though.

I don't really want to ask this, but can't seem to help myself.... why is there more of a mess with rats? Just that they're bigger?
