This is Sanders, another ambassador owl, doing her best impression of a solar panel. When relaxed and presented with a sunbeam, burrowing owls will soak up the rays by laying flat and sometimes even spreading the wings to absorb more heat.
Spotting a sunbeam in the corner of our interpretive centre, I decided to find out if George loved sunbeams as much as the next burrowing owl.
After setting George down in the middle of a hearty sunbeam, this is how he immediately reacted.
Let's take a close up.
Oh dear, I disturbed his reverie.
This deserves some video. LOOK AT HIS TINY TAIL!
I think this was an important day for George. Sunbeams are awesome.
