Okay. These are three orphaned Great Horned Owlets. We currently have 5, plus 3 Barred owlets and 3 Screech owlets. We also have 2 Pileated woodpecker chicks and a Blue Jay chick. On the mammal side we have an orphaned baby beaver and an orphaned baby red fox cub! As you can imagine it is more like a full time job than a hobby, but I love it! :-)
My husband is a licensed wildlife rehabilitator and has the only migratory bird license in the state of Arkansas. He is also a vet! Only one person per household is allowed to hold the license but I have WAY more hours than are required to have my own. I am assured that if anything were to happen to my husband I would be given a license. Last year we built a flight cage that is large enough for eagles to fly in. We call it the Creathedral since it resembles a cathedral is is just as huge! :-)


Wow, can you post pictures of the Cathedral? Or maybe some video of the eagles flying in it????
