OWLS AND FALCONS COME TO BIRCHY HILL29-09-17
Liberty’s Owl and Raptor Centre was visiting Birchy Hill and informed Residents and Staff about the differences in owls, their hunting habits, and how you can recognize a nocturnal owl from a daytime hunter.
All owls are carnivorous birds of prey and live mainly on a diet of insects and small rodents such as mice, rats, and hares. Some owls are also specifically adapted to hunt fish. They are very adept in hunting in their respective environments. Since owls can be found in nearly all parts of the world and across a multitude of ecosystems, their hunting skills and characteristics vary slightly from species to species, though most characteristics are shared among all species.
After having an informative morning in our café, the owls were brought to all lounges and to the residents who unfortunately are bedbound. Everybody enjoyed to see these majestic birds.
A big “Thank you” to the birds and their handler.
