WASHINGTON (WUSA) - The Smithsonian's National Zoo welcomed four new additions to its Bird House this summer.
Two Burrowing Owl chicks, the smallest owl species in North America, were born on May 24. The Burrowing Owl is 10 inches in length, which is slightly larger than an American robin.
Additionally, two Kori Bustard's made their debut in June. They will not be on exhibit until late August, but Zoo visitors can see their parents at the Kori Bustard exhibit, located outside of the Bird House.
