I’m impressed that the Great Horned was as docile as it looked. Hope it survived intact. Great Horneds are magnificent birds.
It was probably exhausted from being stuck in there for so long. It doesn’t look too hurt from what little I can tell in the video. I hope it got released home again after some medical care.
The owls are not what they seem.
She has a good heart, to be moved to tears by that. Hope it made it OK after this.
I just like that there is a place called Yeehaw Junction.
This is Florida, of course there is!
No harm, no fowl.
Owlie says “Yo, imma get up in ur grill, dawg!”
I love the slow-motion blinks.

And then there’s Tricky, the coyote, who ended up in the same position after getting hit by an SUV.
Coyote survives 75 mph collision with car – and being trapped between grill and radiator – for 8 hrs
Obligatory: Was the Road Runner driving?
MECHANIC: Ah, yeah, there’s your problem. Owl.
WOMAN: How much is this going to cost me?
MECHANIC: Well, first thing you have to figure out is if this is a metric owl, or a standard one. I’ll call you after I get in touch with my distributor. . .
And you just know that there’ll be some kind of special de-owler tool that only Ford makes, and the generic de-owlers you get from Pep Boys won’t work with Ford vehicles…
Any auto shop could have done an Owl Change
Curse you! That pun was so horrible I should have thought of it!
She is Soooo not going to Hogwarts.
Someone’s mail got lost.
What a coincidence! My first sexual experience happened near Yeehaw Junction.
Does…the coincidence…involve a great horned owl?
Don’t we all wish? (I guess?)
“Ma’am, you have an owl in your grille”
*SLAP* “How dare you, you cad!”
Actually, I was thinking of trying it out as a pickup line.
That owl is the new dramatic chipmunk/prairie dog.
An owl got stuck in my classroom in third grade. I say stuck, but it may have stayed there willingly, it looked quite comfortable. It caused quite a commotion and my classroom became the most popular place in school that day.
Horace Greenstein, all up in her grill.
