On the glove, to brighten your day! If you ever get a chance to hold one, they weigh next to nothing. I think he weighs about 250 grams if I remember right. I love being able to have him up close so I can admire his intricate feather patterns.
Barn owls are definitely one of the strangest birds I’ve ever met. They can seem a bit deranged, especially when they’re well-fed and display this very menacing behavior where they hold out their wings and rock back and forth, clicking their beaks at you. It’s pretty demonic.
I still quite like them though!
