Pair Of Orphaned Baby Owls Take Over Apartment

Two orphaned baby owls have moved in with Jimmy Robinson, park keeper at Longleat Safari and Adventure Park in England, where they are busy finding small places to hide. The tiny 6-week-old burrowing owlets, nicknamed Linford and Christie (after the gold-medal-winning British Olympian) were hatched in an incubator at a local hawk conservancy and need 24-hour care for another month.

The birds, native to North and South America, get their name from living in small burrows in the wild, but this pair has certainly found no problem adapting that behavior to a one-bedroom apartment. Robinson keeps a close eye on the tiny birds as they try to blend in, the game keeper told British news service BNPS.

”Tea cups and bookcases are a particular favorite, but it’s good to see them developing their natural behavior,” he said, adding “and they always seem to find me at meal times”
