Feeling Flighty

Age: 12 days old
Mass: 82 grams

I start every morning weighing each owl. This helps me figure out how much to feed them, which is important because overfeeding an owlet can be very damaging.

This morning, George did not want to stand on the scale and I had to "tub" him. As you can see, that didn't stop him from bouncing around.

I wonder what he'll be like when he figures out how to fly.
