Owls are Freaking Ridiculous

And we all know it.

This is where I reblog photos of owls being adorable, silly, creepy, bizarre, and generally just...absurd.

NB: I am nowhere close to an owl expert so IDK the species on most of these. If you do, drop an ask (be sure to include which post you're talking about)!

OCCASIONALLY TUMBLR LIKES TO LIE TO ME ABOUT WHICH BLOG IT'S QUEUING THINGS FOR, TOO, so I apologise if anything out of place comes up.

This is not a quoll. It is a barking owl getting a scratch on the head and making happy owl noise.

oh gosh ohhhhh mygod

Have you heard of the sooty owl? They are frightening and their eyes are probably hell portals.

i DID actually while i was looking up owls a while back oh MAN they have incredible faces, like some kinda confused ghost who ended up in a bird and now just has to live with it

looks like they come in lesser and greater sooty flavors, and theyre both pretty similar except for their sizes (about 43 cm for the greater, 37 for the lesser)

image

theyre like someone took a barn owl and just lowered the brightness, threw some speckles in there, made their eyes a direct portal to the infinite nightmarish abyss, called it a day

the YOUNG SOOTY OWLS on the other hand dont even look like real animals. they look like someone made a dodo out of felt and accidentally left it in a dryer. owls are great

Kinda giggling at the sudden Dean/Cas coming from the owl blog <3 (I'm seriously not annoyed, all I can picture are two dorky owls in each other's faces)

Can I purchase a copy of the picture "Tawny Owlets by Jeff Moore"?

I’m not sure but I’m aiming to find out! I think I may have found the right Jeff Moore but I’ll have to await his response to my message. If it’s a positive ID I’ll update that post with his website info and the answer on print availability.
