    Most common owl around these parts is the Morepork (or Ruru). There's one that lives nearby. You can hear it from a good distance, calling out 'more pork... more pork...' through the night. It's quite nice to drop off to sleep to, on those occasions it stops within a km or so.

    Glad it's not just outside the window, though.

    Owls are everywhere, and they are loud and annoying.

    When I was on holiday as a kid, staying in a little cottage, at night the sheep and cowss in adjacent fields started to make an absolutely deafening racket

    Then an owl screeched, and they went quiet.

    But the owl wasn't a hero, oh no, the owl just continued to screech, unopposed, because he was a jerk

    Alright, day birds are making noise.

    This means the owl has returned to its dread realm, not to bother me for at least 16 hours.

    Are you certain the owl isn't trying to trick you?

    Like, it may have some other birds at gunpoint to lull you into a false sense of security.

    Aww man

    I wanted to post this.

    Those were the screech owl's honest to god reactions to the gunfire! Best owl actor.

    The screeches, however, were added in afterward.

    To be honest though owls are one of my favourite animals, that lovely owl video is a perfect example of why.

    Sometimes we see it just hanging out.

    Well at least rabbits are quiet.

    Once heard an owl eating a mouse right above in the attic. It was like something out of a horror movie. Crunching the mouse's skull sounded like taking a bite out of an apple.

    Owls are fucking monsters.

    We have a bird refuge near our house where I volunteer at sometimes. They have some little burrowing owls that just go ballistic whenever people come by, which is great because they're about the size of an adult fist, and there are 6 of them, so it looks like a bunch of fuzzy balls rolling around.

    And then they have a few barn owls who just sit there and look fucking gorgeous all the time. They were injured to the point where they can't be released back into the wild, so they've grown pretty accustomed to humans, to the point where they'll fly over and land on your arm if you're wearing a sleeve.

    I knew a woman for quite some time, and when I'd first met her she'd had some scars circling her wrist and forearm

    She never mentioned them, and even though we hung out a fair bit I never felt right in asking

    Part of me wondered if they were relics of a suicide attempt, or abuse, or something horrible and personal that wasn't my place to go into

    Turned out she used to work at a bird sanctuary, and still volunteered there from time to time, and when she'd started out a juvenile Eurasian Eagle Owl tried to use her as a perch and scrabbled about because it couldn't get a proper hold

    Owl trivia: The Eurasian Eagle Owl is called "Uhu" in German which is pronounced "oohoo", mimicking its cry. In French, it's called "grand-duc" which means "grand duke".

    And, with that trivia, I suddenly understand why the owl was called Fergie

    I have honestly never made that connection before now. REVELATION!

    Owl trivia II: The chicks of many owl species leave their nest before being fully fledged. They sit on branches where their parents continue to feed them. Owls in this stage of life are therefore called "Ästlinge" in German which literally means "branchlings".

    I knew a lady once who was the director or something for the local Hurted Birds Home for the Hurted and I got to go back in the reserved area a lot to see the owls and eagles. Owls are awesome and adorable.

    The Owlman, sometimes referred to as the Cornish Owlman, or The Owlman of Mawnan, is a purported cryptid that was supposedly sighted around mid 1976 in the village of Mawnan, Cornwall. The Owlman is sometimes compared to America's Mothman in cryptozoological literature.

    The Owlman story began when paranormal researcher Tony "Doc" Shiels was approached by a man, Don Melling, who had been visiting the area on holiday from Lancaster. Melling said that on April 17, 1976, his two daughters, 12-year-old June and her 9-year-old sister, Vicky, were walking through the woods near Mawnan church when they saw a large winged creature hovering above the church tower. The girls were frightened and immediately ran to tell their father. According to Shiels, the family had become so perturbed by the sighting that they had abandoned their holiday three days early and that the father would not allow either of his daughters to be interviewed. Sheils was, however, provided with a drawing of the creature made by twelve year old June.

    I like the owl in this picture. The creatures in the foreground are demons, trying to tempt poor old Saint Anthony.
