I do love this video. My GHO will sometimes lean against me and fall asleep. I was doing an all day, career day education program in a gym and though owls are much lighter than they look, she got heavy so I put her in a big cage I had brought. She went nuts. Screaming her head off, hanging on the side of the cage, flapping her wings and banging around. I was so afraid she would hurt herself and got her out as quickly as I could. then it hit me - she had never ever been in a cage before. She has a huge flight cage and I transport her in a big pet taxi but never a cage. I think she was frightened and angry. She was on my hand the rest of the day. Great horned owls are known as the 'tiger of the sky' and are fearless. One of the few birds that will take skunks and I've rehabbed one that had been sprayed. What a miserable thing that was but he was eventually released. I truly hope that people looking at this will look into volunteering with a rehabber. Its an incredible opportunity to work with wild animals more closely than any other "job" without a PhD and its how new rehabbers learn and get licensed. A few other patients -- You can see the hummingbird's crop is stuffed full. The ravens were a real handful. I had to keep them separate because the slightest noise and they'd be screaming for their next meal. When they were older, I put them in a flight cage. When I would go in to feed them, they would hang off of me, try to steal my glasses and just in general be ornery and charming. The barn owl was getting exercise and physical therapy. Barn owls have a scream that will break wine glasses. The last one is a vulture. Very cool birds and they serve a really important purpose in nature. And I really really love gho's.
