Owl experience

Owl experience

Two owls came to visit school and their names were Archie (Barn owl) and Gismo (White faces Scops). Archie is white and cream and had a wing span of approximately 90cm. He eats mice, shrews, small rats and birds. He was the noisy one of the two and didn’t like to be in his dark box.
Gismo was grey with large orange eyes. He had two tuffs of feathers on the top of his head that looked like ears but his ears are on the side of his head. Some children slid their hand inside the glove with an adult and Gismo came and landed on our hand. He eats insects, chicken feet and small birds.
