The owl that's working in an office

An owl working in an office? Sounds strange, but if you're training up to work with humans, that's exactly what you've got to do.

Newsround's Martin has been to meet Middle Mouse, the bird getting trained up to be the next demonstration owl at an education centre in Gloucester.

As a new recruit, he's been working hard on the phones and spreading his wings to the computers too!

The whole idea is to get the owl used to being around humans before he can be let loose in public and help educate visitors to the centre.
