I love owls. I’ve crocheted them, painted them and embroidered them, but this weekend I got to see the real thing up close at the Hastings Town and Country Show at Alexandra Park.
This big guy is an Eagle Owl and I love his big tufty eyebrow feathers. You should have seen the size of his claws! I was telling my husband to make noises like a struggling mouse to get the bird’s attention, but when I saw the size of its claws a suggested he upgrade to a dying rabbit! That got the response you’d expect, from both the bird and my husband. I got much better results singing “Who Are You?” by the Who. I can only conclude that either the owls are used to people making twit-twoo type noises, or they are CSI Vegas fans.
I’m rooting for CSI.
