Coincidence of the day!

There is an article today in one off the biggest newspapers in Sweden about the wild owl population in india drasticly decreaseing because of people bying them illegaly. They blame it on Harry Potter.

Seastone has some great points. I think it`s very unlikely he`s a pet.

Gosh. At my university, I`m in the raptor club and feed/handle our birds regularly. Our most adorable owl is a barn who is imprinted on humans and scared of live prey. He thinks he`s people. It`s awesome (but sad, since he`d`ve been releasable). Two others are mean, and one just hates leaving her cage. If you actually had to feed them and saw them eat up close... it`s not nearly as adorable as a bird hunting invisible prey.

And you guys shouldn`t assume he`s been taken from the nest. It is quite illegal to own owls in the US except for certified falconers. Since there are only about 4k of them and owls are very unusual choices (redtailed hawks or gyrfalcons being preferred), he`s far more likely in rehab. If he were being prepared for permanent residency with humans because he`s non-releasable, he`d have jesses on. He`s just banded, though, indicating he`ll be let go.

As adorable as it is, owls are terrible pets. Unless you happen to like staying up all night long.

ishkabibbles: You think so? Look at his flight feathers. His head is a bit fuzzy, but I don`t think it`s downy.

It may seem like fun until it constantly wants to play fetch and you get too lazy to play anymore.

So was this lil baby owl stolen from a nest?

To add to the loss of habitat, disturbance and other factors adversely impacting on owl species - another source of illegal hunting. Trapping for pets and aw of the day.

Nice one JK.

Mr. Owl, how many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop?... And don`t just lick it three times then bite it you jerk! >:C

Maybe I should rephrase that... it kind of sounds sexual o.O

Considering how young the little one is, It would be interesting to see what would happen when presented with prey as Planty suggested. Great clip though, my kids loved it.

Ah. Not invisible prey to the owl. The corner board is actually raised up so that it is an optical illusion to us. There was a bug in the corner that we couldn`t see.
