Kirkleatham Owl Center (2) October 2022

We’ll finish looking at purdey burdies today , first part HERE if you missed it 😊.

I have no idea what this one is. He looks like a cross between a teradactyl and a porcupine.

Porcadactyl.

This one’s easy, Kookaburra. A chap was feeding them some fish through the wire cage but I’m not posting that as it looked quite disgusting, and smelled the same!

This one was bobbing up and down on a branch like she was dancing

The Yellow winged upside down tit.

Pelicans are so comical!

Burrowing Owls are found throughout open landscapes of North and South America. They can be found in grasslands, rangelands, agricultural areas, deserts, or any other open, dry area with low vegetation. And in North Yorkshire can be found in a drainpipe,

Leggy Larry

Focus was a bit off here sorry, but no matter, you can still see he’s a Spectacled Owl. They roost in the canopies of rainforests and gallery woods, where assailants are few. It eats almost anything; during one lurid encounter in Panama, one slaughtered a three-toed sloth, then feasted on its mangled body. The bird is aptly named for the bandit-like mask around its eyesβ€”black spectacles on a fleecy white head for the young, white frames on a dark head for adults.

No clue what this one is, definitely an owl though, and has a great name!

The beautiful Snowy Owl

Finally, blerk, I had the wrong lens on to get this Great Siberian Owl all in, so concentrated on doing a close-up. The bugger closed his eyes every time I took a shot. I still like this shot though.

So that’s it for Feathered Fauna with Fraggle. The rest of our trip into North Yorkshire was shot mostly on film, but will feature on this blog and the Fragglefilm blog. So stay tooned, have your notebooks and pens at the ready, we’ll be doing History again! Yay!

  2. A most enoyable post again, Fraggle. I looked up the meaning of fraggle the other day and it seemed you were a kind of Muppet. But no! You are an owl. Somehow I find that suits you better. The pictures are wonderful again and your intermitting words and captions made me smile all the post thrue.
