Manning the Barn Owl

I spent 3 hours down at Falconry this afternoon sat in the sunshine getting our new Barn Owl used to being around people and comfortable sitting on the glove.

She's much calmer than she was yesterday but still baited (tried to fly) off the glove a few times and needs a lot more time spending with her.

She was also "toe dusting" which is a defensive or nervous behaviour towards people, bowing her head down to her toes, shaking it as if to say no.
I did some research and read they can also click their beak and hiss if they feel threatened but she's not been doing that, which I guess is a good sign.
