I’m a baby owl!
Hi guys! I am a baby owl! It’s been a few days since my siblings and I hatched our egg and came out! We birds have a big difference from other animals. When we hatch and are born, we are very different from when we grow up. When we are born, we don’t have feathers, our eyes don’t see well, and we can’t fly and walk! We scream so that our mother and father feed us. We also eat and eat until we grow up and grow feathers and be able to fly like other birds.
In the first few weeks of our lives, we owls can’t do anything except stay in the nest, make noise, and eat!
You must want to know what a nest is! A nest is something like your house, But it’s not quite like home. Our owls’ home is either in the hole in the tree’s trunk or in the crack in the stone walls! Sometimes we make nests in the gaps in the ground.
Okay! Now I want to tell you some of the foods we owls like. We love owls, lizards, and fish! We also love mice very much. When our mom and dad come home with these foods, we are very excited and scream with happiness!
Sometimes we eat grasshoppers, which are very delicious!
By hunting rodents like mice, our moms and dads make their number not increase! If there are too many of them, they will damage the vegetable fields! We will grow up faster by eating them!
We owls have very sharp ears and can hear even the slightest movements! Our big eyes can see everything in the dark and fly safely.
One of the most important things we can do is to pray quietly! We fly so quietly that no one hears our flapping wings. That’s why when a mouse moves in the dark of the night, we hear its sound very quickly, and then we go very slowly and hunt it!
Our moms and dads are very skilled in hunting; that’s why everyone calls us owls: the king of hunting at night.
Oh! I nearly forgot to say one important thing: at night, when you people sleep, we owls are awake and eat and fly! And in the morning, when you wake up and play, we owls sleep and rest!
We also have a very cute feature! We owls can turn our heads a full circle and see behind us. It’s so cool and funny! Is not it?!
If, on a quiet night, you hear the sound of “Whooooooo, Whooooooo,” it might be our voice saying hello to you!
Well, my dad brought me food! I have to eat, and then it’s time for flight class! I have to learn to fly very fast! So goodbye, my good friend!
