A fanatical birder blogging about Screech owls in owl box, backyard birding and wildlife in the Northeast USA.
That's a very, VERY cool video.
Incredible video Lynne! Owls never cease to amaze me....
Fascinating, esp. how the owl's eyes/face stay locked onto the sound while it flies around the trees and while hovering. Love this stuff!
I couldn't agree more Chilibean. The more I learn about owls the more fascinated I become.
Awesome, Owlman...thank you SO much for sharing. I plan to steal it.LOL I just posted my first bit on Owls (I'm reading the fascinating new book by Scott Rashid re: small owls). This clip not only explains a great deal regarding the importance of the facial disks, but also mentions yet another reason for the special fringed wing-headers. I just assumed quiet flight was so an owl could surprise it's prey...but just learned it is also imperative not to 'loose' track OF that prey, either. COOL...and thanks again!Beverly
Hi Beverly,Glad to hear you enjoyed it, feel free to steal it ;-) I'll have to check out the book. I got Wesley the Barn owl for Christmas so I need to get reading!All the best,Owlman.
