    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.
