The heady taste of weasel

This photo was taken at a local fete in July, when we ducked into the tent of an owl rescue during a downpour.

I keep believing I see this sweet bird everywhere, but those are different barn owls from different animal rescue groups. They all seem to have this happy attitude to being stroked (which is, no doubt, why wildlife rescues trot them out to help fundraise).

No kidding, I bet I’ve been nibbled by five little barn owls since this picture was taken.

I’ve always found barn owls to be both very queer looking and very appealing. I didn’t know they liked to be stroked, and that just adds to the appeal!

I wonder if you could train barn owls for hunting, like falcons. I suppose operating at night would add to the challenge, along with the probability that alcohol would be involved.
