Owls Visit Broadford

Today we were privileged to meet many different species of owl from all over the world. The different types of owl had many different characteristics, which the children found incredibly interesting. Amazingly one of the owls was able to change its shape - growing five times in size!

All of the children were able to stroke the birds feeling the difference between the feathers of different species. Did you know that the Barn Owls screech rather than hoot? Please follow the link to find out more about these amazing birds - Owl Wise.
Alternatively look at the Owl Wise Youtube channel to see some of the birds in action.
