  • My Favorite Breakfast

    My favorite breakfast; chunks of mouse! Unfortunately when people find baby birds of prey they try and give them water, milk, bird seed, lettuce, hot dogs, hamburger, or bacon not realizing how bad those things are for me. Great horned owls eat almost exclusively rodents of all kinds; mice, rats, gophers, etc. This is why … Continue reading “My Favorite Breakfast”
