Nobody Believed Her When She Described Her Owls Nightly Ritual. So She Caught THIS Video

What is cuter than a baby owl dancing to the song “Monster Mash” alongside a look-alike stuffed owl animal toy? Nothing. As this video shows, the scene is one of absolute adorableness, mixed in with some sweet dance moves and head bobbing. This bird will melt and steal your heart, he just looks so innocent and nice.

The little star of the clip is an orphaned Great Horned Owl whose temporary name was Oakley. The baby bird was being cared for at a wildlife rehabilitation center that specializes in birds of prey. Oakley was given the stuffed animal puppet so he would have something to cuddle up with.

According to the comments, the bird loved the plush toy and liked to rest against it because it helped make him relax. The man caring for him did his best to keep Oakley wild and unaccustomed to humans. He would hide himself to keep from being seen by placing a camouflaged sheet over his body and cut out holes just for his eyes.

When it was time to feed Oakley he made a Great Horned Owl call, mimicking exactly what a mother owl would do. The cute baby was subsequently placed with 3 other juvenile orphans of his species, and they all learned more about how to properly live the owl life. Before they were released some two months later they were taught how to catch live prey.

The story was updated and the man who posted it added in the comments that by the time Oakley flew off into the night he was “quite mean and didn’t like humans.” It turns out that juvenile owls are just like a typical teenager, ungrateful and rude. All jokes aside, it’s best for Oakley to not depend on people or be drawn to them.

The Raptor Rehabber channel on YouTube is a wonderful source of information and videos on all things raptor related. For those unfamiliar with the term, “raptor” basically means ‘bird of prey’ and refers to any bird who hunts and eats other animals. Eagles, hawks, falcons, and buzzards are a few of the well known kinds and they are the apex predators of the sky.

These birds both depend on and need to have exceedingly sharp vision, knife-like talons, and powerful beaks to survive. Owls are another type of raptor that are categorized separately. They are nocturnal birds of prey who emerge and hunt mainly under the cover of darkness all throughout night.

Owls have developed the ability to fly almost completely silently. This ninja-like aspect of their flight is all thanks to the structure of their feathers, it reduces turbulence and makes them practically undetectable to prey until it’s too late.

When their silent flight is combined with their perceptively keen hearing abilities, it makes them one deadly accurate hunter. Hopefully Oakley is somewhere out there in the wild, doing his “Monster Mash” dance, and bobbing his head around.
