Meet Rusty and Iris,

2 Great Horned Owls who can't live in the wild but CAN breed
in captivity to help us learn more about the vocalizations of their species.
Rusty was hit by a car and is blind in his right eye, and Iris's right eye was punctured,
leaving her blind in her right eye also.
They are still wild owls and need their privacy to breed, so they are housed on private
property in rural Houston.
But this video stream allows you to share their lives from anywhere in the world.

I forgot my speakers were up and they scared the heck out of me they flew around
and then started yelling for about 10 seconds and I couldn't get the volume down
quick enough and it woke the baby up

A rare visitor to the greater Vancouver area:

Northern hawk owl makes rare visit to Lower Mainland; birders get Christmas treat

Bird last seen in area about 20 years ago settles on Westham Island

METRO VANCOUVER - For birders in the Lower Mainland, Christmas has come early with the arrival of a northern hawk owl, a rare visitor to the region and one that seems to enjoy its celebrity status. The owl is commonly found in Canada’s northern boreal forests, but this December settled on Westham Island near Ladner, where it’s been regularly sighted and photographed beside the island’s main road.

“It’s a Christmas present, very rare and unusual,” said Viveka Ohman, a White Rock birder and executive member of Nature Vancouver, formerly the Vancouver Natural History Society.

“I think the last time we had an owl like that here was back in the 1980s. Every 20 years you might see one.”

Pete Davidson, a biologist with Bird Studies Canada who works on Westham Island, said this is only the sixth record of a northern hawk owl visiting the Vancouver area.

In winter, the owls wouldn’t normally travel much farther south than the central province, such as around Prince George, but for some reason this one overshot its mark, perhaps influenced by weather conditions or the search for food.

Regardless, the raptor is now in owl Nirvana, feasting on rodents and small birds that thrive in the snowless agricultural fields. It is mainly seen on hydro poles or shrubs and trees mid-island close to where Westham Island Road takes a dogleg to become Roberston Road.

“The reason it’s hanging out in exactly the same place is because there’s so much food there,” said Davidson, noting it seems to especially savour Townsend’s voles. “It’s gorging itself, having a great time, like a permanent feast laid out in front of it.”
