On this episode of Breaking Trail, Coyote gets up close with a teeny tiny Owl!
Well a teeny-tiny "Scops Owl" to be more specific, and this isn’t just any ordinary owl folks… "Tiny” as she is appropriately named is actually a foster parent for other owls at a sanctuary in South Africa called “The Caring Owl.” That’s right Tiny actually nurtures baby owlets who have lost their parents so they can grow and be rereleased back into the wild…how AWESOME is that?!

[music]. look at how big those eyes are . yeah it's very cute you see just . blinking at me now as we know all . species are nocturnal and they have an . incredibly efficient vision in the dark. so tiny is a female now when they lay a . clutch of eggs it's over between two and . four eggs and the mother and the father . both take care of the babies oftentimes . the mother will stay in the nest while . the father goes out and hunts bringing . that food back to the nest for the . mother and once the chicks hatch they . then also reap the benefits of that prey . i got an idea you know what i've got . right over here can heal worms no not at . cookies these are considered cookies for. an owl though but these little tiny . norms and let's see this is me feeding a . teeny tiny hobble delicious right the . bonding with a tiny now how about that . okay let's eat . ouch no that's my finger that is the . knot oh mom not good i love about these . owls specifically tiny can you turn like . this for the camera just a little bit . there you go see how they can turn their . head 180 degrees in all directions and . look at these ear tufts makes it look . just like a miniature great hornet oh so . beautiful so how is it that we're . getting to hang out with tiny today well . tiny is actually at a rehabilitation . center right now and tiny is really good . at raising other cowlitz so she has been . responsible for raising several . different species of owls in her little . owl box and she is one really good . mother and that's one thing to note . about this species specifically is that . they are very caring of their young . i guess not even just the young of their . own species but other all species as . well he's a little foster mama but tiny . is an owl that is permantly in captivity . at this point but she is a good . ambassador and mother for all bird . species age 60 miller's and fingers oh . well this was pretty cool visiting south . africa and while we did see some big . animals like elephants we also managed . to feature one teeny tiny owl i'm coyote . peterson be brave stay wild we'll see on . the next adventure . oh she pooped all over my jacket i mean . she likes you tiny oh it smells like . rotten eggs i find a group from a tiny . bird i bleeding i'm pooped on this just . seems like a typical breaking trail . episode. where's oh yeah . all right tiny i think that's the end of . the episode she's had enough broke my . heart . pooped all over me south africa is . considered a hot spot for birding with . hundreds of species constantly migrating . through or in many cases permanently . calling the eastern cape home seeing . ostrich in the wild was certainly. something i will never forget . reminiscent of their prehistoric . relatives it's thrilling to imagine them . as living dinosaurs but when it comes to . feathered memories i will always . remember my time spent with the tiniest . owl i've ever seen to learn more about . the owls of south africa make sure to . visit the caring owls website .
