Dinky the Burrowing Owl

(Athene cunicularia)

About Dinky

After being bred for a private collector, Dinky suddenly found that he was no longer wanted as the collector decided not to take him. Dinky was given to us when he was just five weeks old and was hand reared (Dinky was just a ball of fluff at this stage)! He now likes to dig holes all over his aviary (as the name of "Burrowing Owl" suggests), and is a very cute and nosy owl.
