Cute…

Making a meal of it: One lucky chick gets to eat its dinner straight from Mum's beak. But with both their parents on dinner duty, its siblings should get their food soon

[ . Britain. via the Daily Mail]

are two little owls careful and affectionate,

with eyes strangely closed while passing on a worm.

.

Little Owl is actually the name of the tiny bird (a bit like how the chinese cockroach would not be called the Big Fat Brown Cockroach) .

Species is Athene Noctua, after the goddess Athena, to whom it was sacred.

Almost there! The owl tugs on the worm using all her strength

Pop! The 7inch owl finally manages to pull the earthworm out of the field after struggling with it for several minutes
