Here Come the Owls

The only time I ever saw an owl in real life: my friend and I were walking in the woods, I couldn’t have been more than seven years old, and we hadn’t gone quite 100 yards from the playground (you could hear the horseshoes clanking)… when suddenly a little tree, just a few feet away from us, seemed to explore. And out of it flew an owl that I was sure was bigger than me. We’d have run away, if we hadn’t been paralyzed with fear and astonishment. Man, that was a big owl! You don’t forget a thing like that.

The owls in this video are a lot less alarming.
