We have some lovely news to share with you!

In late April a baby Chaco owl was born at Gauntlet Birds of Prey, here in Knutsford. It is doing very well and we’ll keep you posted as to it’s development.

A bit about Chaco owls:

The Chaco owl (Strix chacoensis) inhabits dry Chaco woodland in the South American countries of Bolivia, Paraguay and Argentina. They are medium to large owls with a characteristic round head, a whitish throat and no ear tufts.
These nocturnal birds are found in dry, hilly landscapes, where they build their nests in or under thorny bushes and holes in trees. They usually lay 1 to 2 eggs in early May.
