One of the Girls Swallows a Rat Whole
This morning at work I had the cams up and heard a noise that sounded suspiciously like an owlet hitting gravel. I saw one owlet missing from the perch, so quickly logged into the PTZ cam and waited an agonizing amount of time before I had video. I panned to where the other owlets were looking to find one of the girls on the ground with a rat that she had just caught. Right after I panned over she proceed to swallow the rat WHOLE! First time I've seen one of the owlets swallow something whole since they were 10 days old.
She proceeded to look for another rat in hiding, and a few hours later caught another one. That one she tore into bits to eat, as usual.
