These two owlets were orphaned before they hatched about 6 weeks ago…

But they’ve found themselves a new home, where they seem to be making friends just fine…

They now live with Jimmy Robinson, an employee of┬áLongleat Safari Park in Wiltshire, UK.┬áJimmy says, “As I spend so much time with them, they do look at me as their surrogate mum and will follow me around the house or sit on my shoulder.”

The two birds are burrowing owls, and so practice their natural instincts by always looking for nooks and crannies to hide away in.

They will be fully grown in the next month, at which point they will take up residence at Longleat and have a long, happy life.
