I have an owl dream. Really an obsession. Not the kind of obsession where you buy potholders emblazoned with "WHOOO! WHOOO!" and wear t shirts proclaiming "I heart owls!". My obsession is WAY more dangerous.
I'm permitted (or will be in a year or two) to actually possess and fly one for falconry. Yep. I'm gettin' an owl.
I'm still getting the pot holders and t shirt too. But, I'll have the real thing some day. The hubby is THRILLED that another mouth to feed and butt to poop is joining the farm (insert eye roll).
But, until one of those big eyed beauties is perched on my glove, videos and pictures of owl cuties will have to hold me over. So, enjoy the owl awesomeness.
Please note: you have to be state licensed to possess a raptor AND birds of prey are dangerous creatures to be handled with care. For your safety and the bird's safety, do not attempt this at home! The pressure exerted by a raptor's foot and talons can easily pierce skin and break bone. You will bleed and it will hurt.
Stick with owl potholders and t shirts if you're not licensed to possess a bird of prey. Pot holders are a lot less sharp when compared to raptors and t shirts don't break bones.
