Orphaned Baby Owls Having A Hoot in New Home
Owl Be In The Kitchen If You Need Me
Check out these redonkulously cute baby owls making themselves right at home as they settle into comfy coffee cups in the kitchen of their wildlife park keeper, Jimmy Robinson. These wee burrowing owlets, nicknamed Linford and Christie, were hatched in an incubator this past February, and are now being hand-reared 24/7 by Robinson, who works at the Longleat Safari Park in in the UK.
According to the Daily Mail UK, the owlets are finding plenty of nooks and crannies around Robinson's one-bedroom flat to hide and Robinson has to keep a close eye on the little wise-crackers as they seek refuge in plenty of unexpected places including tea cups in the kitchen, bookcases and on Robinson himself!
"As I spend so much time with them, they do look at me as their surrogate mum and will follow me around the house or sit on my shoulder," Robinson related to the Daily Mail UK.
Unlike their nocturnal relatives, burrowing owls tend to be at their most active during day-light hours. They hunt for food from dusk to dawn and their diet consists mainly of insects and small rodents.
Gotta love these cuties!
