Sometimes, we're afraid of what comes natural…birds and humans alike!

Gandalf the Grey is a great grey owl who loves to fly…just like every other bird, right?

WRONG! This little cutie doesn't like open spaces! So flying outside is a BIG no-no!

Fortunately, his handlers at the Knowsley Safari Park near Liverpool got his back.

They've built him his own aviary inside a shed so he can fly and fly and fly as high as the sky ceiling!

There's so many cutiez running around the Smithsonian National Zoo, we don't what to do!

Not only did the zoo welcome two DARLING Kori Bustard chicks to their family, they also said hello to two burrowing owl babes too!

Both groups of aDORable chicks will be making their summer debut in late August. The Kori Bustard chicks are currently being hand-reared to avoid conflict with other birds of prey.

The burrowing owl babies are little more mature but they're still pint sized compared to other birds.

Still, we wish we could take either species home to play with us!

Pennsylvania's ZooAmerica North American Wildlife Park got a special treat when three GORGEOUS burrowing owlets hatched at the end of May.

The eggs came from the National Zoo in D.C. and ZooAmerica staffers hand-reared the darling babes.

The zoo hopes to introduce two of the owls to the Southwest while one stays behind to become a part of the zoo's education programs.

Burrowing owls live in nests on the ground and they are active during the day, making unique within the owl family.

Welcome to the world, you three cuties!
