Bentley

Bently is a Peruvian striped owl (Pseudoscops clamator)

 

Native to South America and parts of Central America.

They can be seen on the edges of woodlands, marshes, grassy open areas and tropical rainforest.

It prefers to hunt at night in open spaces.

He was hatched on 11th April 2015 from Oxfordshire Owls and I collected him on the 16th May (5weeks later).

We think he is male but without an official DNA test or waiting for an egg to be laid you only have the breeders guidance to go with to start with.

He weighs in at around 15oz and his sound is a lovely wooing but when we take him out he is a right chatter box and when he is nervous he stamps his feet and barks, he will also fan out his feathers to make himself look bigger when he sees a dog and the show is very impressive.

His aviary is only 8ft from the house and he sits on his perch looking at us and watching the TV.

We feed him once a day and his diet consists of Mice and chicks of which he gets one of each a day generally.
