Feel-good Friday post: Owl family waking up to a GoPro


How did your day start today? You probably wouldn’t be thrilled to wake up and find a camera filming you but that’s exactly what happened to an owl family recently — they woke up one morning to find a GoPro camera trained on their burrow. The curious birds spent some time investigating this intruder, which gave us the opportunity for a great up-close-and-personal look at some baby owls. (The baby owls make their appearance about a minute or so in.) Too cute!

And if you enjoyed that, you may also enjoy seeing Kuu the Screech Owl having a bath and being dried.

Now after all that cuteness, if you think having an owl as a pet might be fun, think again: Here are the top 10 reasons you don’t want an owl for a pet. Owls are sharp-eyed predators that hunt small game – occasionally even swooping down on a small household pet. So if you want to learn more about owls, the Audubon Society is a good place to start.

Real Life Angry Birds


When you head off to start your work day, bird attacks aren’t usually high on your “risk management” list. But the following clips of workers going about their business and fending off angry birds might make you think twice. The enraged birds aren’t discriminatory – office workers, mailmen, cops – all equally at risk. We’re not sure if this is seasonal revenge by the turkey and goose population who are tired of having their kin folk end up on holiday platters or what, but be warned!
