She’s over the moon for her new kids 💕
Luna, an optimistic owl, has sought to be a mother for the past two years. Unfortunately, despite her best attempts, things did not work out.
“Not only did her eggs fail to hatch this year, but she also lost her clutch last year,” stated Robert E. Fuller, a wildlife rehabilitator in the United Kingdom.
However, Luna’s request was granted this year.
When Fuller learned of two orphaned owl chicks in need of a parent, he immediately thought of Luna. He planned to expose Luna to the two needy infants since he knew her maternal impulses would go unmet this year.
Fuller hid them inside her nest until she returned. But will she take them?
The footage of what transpired afterwards dispelled any doubt:
Luna hurried to the orphaned chicks’ side, apparently eager to take them under her wing.
“After a long wait, Luna the tawny owl is finally a mother,” Fuller wrote.
Love brought the young family together, and their future has never looked brighter.
In a recent update, Fuller said, “Tawny owl mom, Luna, is extremely loving with her foster chicks.” “They’ve been with her for about a week and are doing great.”
