You’re hired !!
Never eat hotdogs and then twirl around as fast as you can in a swivel chair.
Beautiful regal bird. And knows a pretty girl when he sees it. Hahaha!
How can an owl turn its head 270 degrees?…
That’s easy… It’s possessed by Satan!!!
Beautiful bird. But I can’t help but think of the show “Dirty Jobs” where Mike Rowe had the job of owl vomit collector. The owls can’t digest the bones of their prey so they routinely barf up ‘pellets’ which are used in biology & veterinary classes where they reconstruct the things that the owl ate. Collgeges and veterinary schools pay for ‘owl pellets’. Owls are very terretorial and attack anyone who gets near their nest.
Looks to be a Barred Owl
That’s what I was doing when I cracked up my car while watching those hot chicks on the sidewalk
And do you guys know just how funny you are? I laughed until my sides hurt from a few of your comments. You’re the best!

It’s not all for the eyesight. Owls have their ears on the sides their heads but covered. The ear openings face forward. Inside are small appendages that partially block the ear canal. On one side (not sure if it’s the left or right) the appendage is twisted to allow more sound in from the bottom. On the other side it is twisted to allow more sound in from the top. Put your hands out in front of you, fingers in line, tips facing each other. On your left hand, twist your wrist so the thumb side is closer to your body. On your right, make the thumb side farther away. That’s what the appendages in an owl’s ear look like.
As the owl turns his head, those appendages help him localize any sounds he hears. He first determines left or right. Then, if the sound enters the left ear first, the owl knows the cause of the sound is downward. If the sound is from the right, he knows it is above him.
Owls don’t necessarily see that much better at night but they sure do hear better.
