Two little owls came out to play from the hole in the tree where the other five lay. Bring us our mice they called to the night where the parent birds hunted in full moon light...

Found the world over, the barn owl is one of the most adaptable, raising up to 9 young where food is in abundance. This Werribee Zoo family is protected by a curfew and some large animal friends such as rhinos, giraffe, eland and zebra. Their mutual relationship is a prime example of commensalism where these 7 young owls get to feast on the abundance of mice that glean from the left over feed. Some of which falls right beneath their nest tree. #easternbarnowl #tyto_javanica #wzbpr #elite_raptors #ig_falconry
One of a brood of seven young #easternbarnowl s preens it's freshly emerged plumage in the lower savannah enclosure at Werribee Open Range Zoo. It is only during the winter night zoo opening times that we can observe these beautiful birds as the enclosure is otherwise off limits affording great protection for them. #tyto_javanica #wzbpr #elite_raptors #ig_falconry
