Cool vid. I can testify to the strength of an owl's talons. A tawny owl hit a mate's
car years ago. We stopped. It was injured so I picked it up with an idea of taking it to a vet or something the next day. To cut a long and unlikely
story short (guns, balaclavas, spotlights and a jeep) ...it flinched and flexed it's claws. They went right through my palms like needles into an
apple. Hurt a little.
Fantastic video!! Sometimes when I walk my dog at night there is an owl that follows us around. He will leapfrog the streetlights as we walk down
the street. Sometimes I can feel his wings as he comes in low over my head on his way to the next streetlight. Owls are really neat creatures and I
think they are smarter than what people give them credit for.
