A great horned owl survived a highway-speed collision with an SUV and rode 150 miles trapped in the vehicle's grille before being discovered the next day. The owl was treated and will soon be released.
I saw that vid, that was the coolest vid!
Seems like owls ain’t in any hurry to blink, though.
When I was a kid, we lived on a farm with a monster barn. Couple times a year I’d be outside like 11 at night during the summer and there was an owl that would perch on top of the barn.
As best I could tell, and this was at night, it was pure white and over two feet tall standing up.
Not sure what kind of owl, but it was upstate NY, so owl-ologists might know!
Great photo. He’s got that “what has been seen...” look in his eyes.
