This is a clip from the BBC Earth series Super Powered Owls (that's a real show that exists apparently) explaining how owls are able to fly so silently. SPOILER: Magic spells. Everybody knows owls are the preferred bird of wizards so it only makes sense. If I had an owl I'm make sure to cast a silent spell on it too because I don't want Voldemort blasting it out the sky. Who else cried hard when that Death Eater killed Hedwig? I just made the mistake of rewatching that scene from the movie on Youtube then a compilation video of the top five deaths in Harry Potter started to autoplay and it began with Dobby so now I'm going to be a shitty mess for the rest of the afternoon THANKS ROWLING.
Keep going for the video.
Thanks to Alyssa, who informed me that as much as she likes owls, flamingos are still her favorite bird. Good to know.
