It was interesting the learn "the way of the owl" as author Stacey puts it. Owls are just as loyal, protective and loving as any other traditional pet.... obviously raising a wild owl is not something everyone can or should do. It was especially amazing to hear how many mice she had to collect and feed to him daily! Owls eat whole mice, then later cough up a ball of the remains. Sounds gross, but many science students study these perfect little mouse skeletons. In fact, on a recent search of owl items, I found that you can actually buy one of these little "balls" on the Urban Outfitters website. Check it out here.
I recommend this read to any animal or owl lover out there. And maybe a visit to the Kellogg Bird Sanctuary, a place I've yet to go, is in my future for my very own owl watching!
