Large owls, like the horned owl, can actually pick up a young rabbit.



I wonder if I could say "lift/catch a young rabbit in the air" instead of the underlined phrase. Thanks.

    Sorry, my bad, I wasn't very clear.

    'carry/lift a young deer in the air' :tick:

    Be aware that 'to lift' means to lift once, but 'to carry' means to lift and fly with the young deer for a longer time, which suggests more strength or endurance.
