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 we are so beneficial to our environment.

Owls do not make good pets. This little guy will be released when he is full grown and learns to hunt and catch mice and small rodents on his own.
