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!

The large white owl on top of the barn is in fact the common barn owl. Farmers who appreciate its rodent catching ability call it the `flying cat’.

It may have been a Barn Owl, also called a "ghost Owl" or "Spirit Owl". They hunt from high perches at night watching below. They have long legs and some white plumage.
