    The boy is 8 today.

    Anyway as a surprise we booked him a 2 hour Owl Handling session at a local falconry. He absolutely loved it and wants to take Daddy for his birthday.

    This is Steven with the falconry owner checking out an eagle owl.




    This is Moon the Tawny Owl and I want to bring him home with me.







    But as it's Steven's birthday he gets to hold him.













    A couple of Sally's other birds - Bengali Eagle Owl and a gorgeous Kestrel.





    And now the Tawny Owl has been traded in for Crystal the Barn Owl and we're off to the field for some flying.







    Can we keep her?



    And a bit of flying fun, including a couple of races to the perch - Crystal always won.

















    Now we have to go again as Steven says that Daddy needs to go for his birthday treat.

    Looks like both Steven and you had wonderful days. I thought he was 8 today but I wasn't sure. He is growing up so fast.

    Oh my gosh! I want one! (An owl that is, not an 8 year old). :D

    Happy Birthday!
