The Burrowing Owl – The Smallest Species of Owl
Sunday, 26 August 2012
It does not take the chicks long to develop the ability to fly. In less than a month they are able to leave the nest, take short flights and learn how to hunt. However, mom and dad will usually continue to help out with food for a further two months. After that the chicks are on their own.
