I want THAT milky owl, very very cute! It's a young one but I think they can be tame enough to be a pet, but they do grow very big! Well, no worries with the cats trying to make a snack out of it - more likely the other way around! I love owls but couldn't possibly deal with the mice and chick diet...
Now, THAT is one hedonistic hooter!
I cant believe you can actually touch an owl!! we dont even have them here (well we have a sort of owl, but you couldnt touch it). Owl ownership is a good goal to have. Glad to see you're not rushing into it, either.
lovely little owl!!reminds me of this clip:I know this has made the rounds many times, but the expression on it's face!! getting more pleasure than the owl abovehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9T1vfsHYiKY
So gorgeous...been a way for a while from your blog...need to catch up! xxx
I does look better with it's eyes blissfully closed. I like owls but those black shiny 'Darth Vader' eyes on that breed do rather freak me out.
Amazing! it's a bit odd at the end though...seems like bird was in the wilderness and then all of a sudden in someone's living room?!i too did not know that you could touch a bird!
Birds are amazing, I remember being transfixed one day at a window watching two magpies rolling down the slope of my sisters front yard lawn-they flipped on their sides, then rolled down the slope, hopped back up to the top, then repeated the fun....how little we understand the animal world...
Choose your kind of owl wisely you should (young padawan)! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rqt0OziQhx8 Want to be greeted by Count von Count when returning home late at night you do not.
I just found your lovely blog. There is a scene in a very old movie, Jeux Interdits (available on DVD w/ subtitles), which has a scene of a dejected little boy in the barn, stroking the resident owl. Just as in your video, the owl leaned into the strokes, closed its eyes and looked euphoric. When I saw that, I thought, acts like half cat, half bird. I'd never seen anything like that before.
Please don't try to tame an owl just for your petting pleasure:Harry Potter blamed for fuelling India owls' demise (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-south-asia-11673226)Support owls in their natural habitat instead - and you will both be happier.
