Whooo loves ya baby?

I came across this story on the Mail Online website.
These ten tawny baby owls have either been orphaned or fell from their nests.

They are currently being cared for at the St. Tiggywinkles (hilarious ;) aviary,
and will be released back into the wild once they are fully grown.

They sure are adorable, 
until, (as one commenter noted under the story) 
you take a look at their talons!

Update: In my travels I see now that Leanne, one of the blogggers I follow (See Dorset Days under my profile) also has these cuties up today - great minds think alike I guess!


  1. How cute is this! But you are right, those talons are deadly!

  2. Love the 2nd picture, they look like they are smiling! :)

  3. Hi Laurie,
    It's amazing how all babies are adorable - even crocodiles and lizards :)

  4. Hi Michelle, You're right, they do lol.

  5. Awww! I like owls, talons and all.

  6. I love owls and yet they never look "real" to me. They kinda creep me out with that but not these guys. I just wanna hug em:)

  7. Owls just plain rule. They seem so mysterious, like there is somthing more to them then they let on.

    And what is up with St. Tiggywinkles? I am sure there is a story behind that name.

  8. Awwww...so cute...so sweet. I'm glad that they've been rescued.

  9. Hi Tatiana, I love them too - I also love cats and they remind me of each other in a weird way.

    Hi LaelShine, I think I know what you mean about them not looking real - they are very striking and in some ways otherworldly.

    Hi WebDebris, I looked into the background behind St. Tiggywinkles and it was named in reference to Beatrix Potter's pet hedgehog Tiggywinkle. This animal hospital was instrumental in raising awareness to the plight of hedgehogs during the drought of 1984. They opened the world's first hedgehog ward. Interesting :)

  10. Hi Martha, Makes you wonder just how many animal babies perish each year in the wild... life can be so cruel at times.


Thanks for stopping by - and leaving your comments! I love reading them :)
