Feathers and Fur is pleased to introduce our new Educational Owl Hour. Specially aimed at those aged between 6 and 10 years the Owl Hour is a wonderfully unique educational session. Owls have throughout history held a magical wing over man, whether it be in the relationship between Goddess and Owl or in the idea that they are the indicator of death. Feathers and Fur wants to take this magic and open it up to show all. Can an Owl really turn its head all the way around? How does it fly so silently? What makes them such a deadly and efficient hunter?
The 1-hour sessions are held on-site in our teaching area. Group sizes are kept to a maximum of six children with just 1 adult spectator per child, there is no charge for the adult spectator. After introductions to the falconer and a few rules and general house keeping, its down to work learning about British Owls, their habitats, diet and status in the UK. As a group you look at feathers and owl pellets and then the opportunity to handle and pose for photos with one of our Owl team members. Spectators can take photos throughout the session of their child and share in the magic of Owls.
