It's almost time for cleaning.
The owls are already in cleaning mode...?
Kukku is cleaning the floor with a towel.
Is Spica cleaning up her toys?
Let's take it easy in December.
This month, December, the birthdays of the Owl Village boss, the Rock Eagle Owls and Prince Alto will come in turn.
We all celebrate birthdays together, so if you come to the store that day, please celebrate with us ♡.
We're in the main part of Mozuku's deferment debut!
For those of you who were expecting cute Mozuku shots, we've kept you waiting!
Here's a nostalgic shot of Mozuku as a little girl. This is the first time I've seen her as a child:
So let's get to it!
Good morning, Mozuku. You're cute again today.
Now that the training set is ready, let's go outside.
By the way, here's what's inside the training set.
Mist spray 1 (water. Spray 1 (For hydration and bathing)
Mist spray 2 (For cleaning toilets)
Toilet paper and wet wipes (for cleaning up poop)
Trash can (for toilet paper)
The sidewalks belong to everyone, so we need to keep them clean!
So let's go!
Mozuku-chan is very interested in the outside.
Mozuku is a girl who is interested in everything, so it seems she is even more curious about the outside.
I was worried that he would be frightened, but he didn't seem to be that frightened. I have a feeling he's going to be a surprisingly big guy.
I think he's more solid than the older Ohagi.
Well, she's a littleowl, so she lives indoors without any training. ......
She doesn't go outside, though!
We proceeded to look around and see what was going on.
It's already so cute. ...... (parent idiot)
Mozuku-chan came home.
She was full of energy even after she got home. She's been eating a lot of food!
I'm relieved to see that her physical condition is fine.
Hang in there! Mozuku!
Owl Village is rooting for you!
We've been training like this for a short time in places with few people.
Now Mozuku-chan has grown into a big guy who doesn't mind at all even in Yoyogi Park where there are many people and crows!
Quintessential, isn't it☆!

I'm sorting through the huge amount of pictures of owls I've taken so far...
Today's topic is "Mozuuku makes his Suemawasi debut"!
It's been five years ago!
............ What is "Suemawasi"?
I'm sure some of you are wondering, so I'll just give you a brief introduction to this decision.
Suemawasi" is a training method used by birds of prey.
The owl is perched on the arm of a special glove.
The lead is also tied to a special metal fitting attached to the glove to prevent it from getting lost (flying away outside).
When you're ready, just go outside and walk around!
It's easy to say, but you have to be very careful σ(^_^;)
By the way, before Suemawasi training, you also need to get used to the glove and to ride on the arm stably.
This training is done after the owls have built up their muscle strength and trust in each other.
Please don't start with Suemawasi right away.
First of all, owls are sensitive animals that often stop eating food due to changes in their environment.
So if you take them out for hours at a time, the stress may cause them to get sick or worse. ......
Get used to it little by little, little by little.
Don't be in a hurry!
Birds of prey are quite unique as pets, so if you don't know something, you can ask a senior owl owner or a professional falconer! I think that is the best way for both humans and owls.
But why go to such lengths?
In fact, the Suemawasi training often results in a calmer owl.
It's just that children who are restless or who tend to act out may get injured.
To train or not to train is a difficult thing to do, isn't it?
There is also the idea that going outside is dangerous in the first place, and especially depending on the season, you have to think about the time of day you take them out and how long you take them .......
In the middle of summer and winter, it's not a good idea.
At Owl Village, we have regular training.
This time, Mozuku will make her debut in the "Suemawasi" training.
For more on Mozuku's Suemawasi training, please look forward to Part 2, which will be uploaded later!
To give you a bit of a spoiler, Mozuku was still Mozuku when she went outside (lol).
It's finally December, is there anything left to do?
I'm enjoying the fluffiness to the fullest.
Oh, those cute little owls.
They are 30% plumper than usual as it is time for everyone to start preparing for winter.
It's not that Azuki has gained weight, you know.
I've been spending a lot of time surrounded by these fluffy creatures, but...
In fact, there's someone else I'm interested in, apart from the owls.
I can't get enough of her eyes, her tongue, and her indescribable touch!
What is the name of this person you admire?
I had made up my mind that I would never cheat on him!
I'm sorry, Alto.
I've met the man of my dreams.
I went there to catch a glimpse of this person of my dreams.
There are lots of snakes, lizards, and turtles in the tank on the wall!
You can even meet chameleons and rare frogs in the tank!
"Touching is an extra charge."
There are many kinds of reptiles that are difficult to control temperature.
If you want to put them on your arm or around your neck, ask the staff to take them out of their cages.
I guess the reason why many stores charge extra for this service is because they have to pay attention to each and every reptile.
Of course, if they do something you don't like, they may bite.
There are different precautions for different types of animals, so please listen carefully to the staff's explanation.
"Beware of running away."
Reptiles such as turtles have an image of being slow and easygoing, but they are surprisingly fast!
Please be careful not to let them climb on your shoulders or back.
I was surprised when a lizard got under my collar!!lol
But no matter how much you think he's going to get away, don't grab him too tightly!
He has a surprisingly squishy belly.
He has a surprisingly squishy belly, and no matter how big he is, you don't want to ride him like you're Urashima Taro!
If you're in a pinch, just ask the staff to "Help Me!" and they'll grab you in a flash.
Most of the reptiles in the Reptile Cafe are leaf and fruit eaters, but there are some carnivores!
Some of them you can't touch, so you can stare at them, take pictures of them, and enjoy them all from a safe place.
Surprisingly, many women don't like to touch reptiles, but I'm sure they'll become addicted to the feeling of being touched.
When I feel depressed after being bullied by Alto, I'll ask him to heal me again...?
However, there are many stores that have owls because of their exotic animal connection, so I can't help but be curious about them.
"Yes! I knew my baby was more cute than yours.”
It seems that the owl-love has not changed.
Spica doesn't have any owl friends.
However, she has been spending more time next to Jiji lately.
Spica and Jiji don't interfere with each other, so I wouldn't call them friends yet.
But it's nice to have friends at such a distance!
(The back of her head is cute too, Jiji&Spica)
In the back view, they kind of look like father and son... ✨
They look like they'd enjoy looking out at the forest together.
It's the end of November today...
November flew by so fast that my memory is fuzzy!
December is going to be a busy month...
Let's take it easy and do our best!
On the last morning of November...
Schola's handsome, sleepy hair.
Muta next to Schola...
Muta had become a monk.
It's almost the end of November...
Corona is getting calmer... I'm trying to improve my immunity by interacting with the owls every morning!
How's it going?
Latte still looks sleepy.
This is how we communicate with each other while keeping an eye on everyone's physical condition.
This is an important time for both the owls and the staff to get used to living with people.
We find out what makes everyone feel good
I'm going to share it with everyone!
We want more and more people and owls to be able to
I'm learning every day so that more and more people and owls can interact with each other without stress and with peace of mind.
Schola has been in a bad mood since this morning.
For a change of pace, I decided to have Schola relax in the cafe space.
Schola is always at the end of the counter where Kii is watching everyone.
peeking curiously at the building next door✨.
Schola looks around, talking to herself.
Schola's mood has improved a bit, hasn't it?
