Year 1 Owl Visit
Year 1 had a visit from ‘The Devon Bird Of Prey Centre’ yesterday to talk to us about owls and how to handle them.
The Barn Owl was called Oracle and is 4 months old. The tiny owl is a White Faced Scops owl called Cherub and is 7 years old. We learned some interesting facts:
An owl’s hearing is so good it can detect a mouse’s heartbeat!
Owls swoop silently to catch their prey.
A barn owl’s tummy is white so that mice think that they are a cloud above them!
When owls catch their prey they put their talons out in front of them.
