Ghost Owl Appears After Collision w/ Window

July 12, 2011


*scratching beak* "F***ing forcefields."

This is a picture of some woman's home window after an owl flew into it. Rest easy though, the owl's apparently okay. Read: it wasn't found dead by the water hose. But it was late delivering a letter to a certain lightning-scarred wizard boy. YOU SHOULDA GONE WITH A STORK.

Experts said the silhouette was left by the bird's "powder down" - a substance protecting growing feathers.

Experts from the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) confirmed the bird was most likely a tawny owl because of its size and shape and the fact that they appear in gardens more regularly than others.

"This would have been very uncomfortable for the bird but thankfully it looks like it survived..."

Really? You think the owl found it "very uncomfortable"? Obviously you've never flown into a f***ing window before. Because I've run through a screen door before and THAT was uncomfortable. I want you to try running into this wall at full-speed and we'll see if you can't come up with a better adjective. *watches* Well? "...doooooctor." Jesus that's even worse than the first one.

Thanks to Rev Doc Dom, who doesn't fly into windows but will peep through them with binoculars if he sees you changing.
