WE’VE MOVED HERE! COME SAY HELLO!
An owl with a severe case of the heebie-jeebies!
The white faced scops owl is not playing the bally fool he’s actually displaying some rather clever defensive behaviour to get himself out of a spot of bother. When presented with a small owl up close the white faced scops owl makes itself looks as big as possible in a bid to scare away the intruder so there is no need for fisticuffs.
When presented with another owl further away it tries to hide by reducing his size and turning his darker coloured back to the other feathered foe in a bid to reduce the size of his silhouette. Clever chap!
