        Вы замечали, что люди как-то по-особенному относятся к совам? Будто и не птицы они вовсе, а пернатые родственники кошек, ну, или других человеческих любимцев. Эта любовь особенно заметна в европейских зоопарках. Практически каждый из них может похвастаться экспозициями с филинами, неясытями, сипухами. Причем, условия для сов создаются вполне достойные.

And that's because it's made of cast iron:

Sailor Amy - taking names and kickin ass

A wild owl apparently had a wild time in southern Germany.

A wild owl apparently had a wild time in southern Germany.

An owl that had evidently drunk too much Schnapps from two discarded bottles was so inebriated that it got picked up by police. The bird will be released once it has sobered up.

German police said on Tuesday they had discovered a paralytic owl that appeared to have drunk too much Schnapps from two discarded bottles.

"A woman walking her dog alerted the police after seeing the bird sitting by the side of the road oblivious to passing traffic," Frank Otruba, spokesman for the police in the southwestern city of Pforzheim, told SPIEGEL ONLINE.


The Brown Owl didn't appear to be injured and officers quickly concluded that it had had one too many. One of its eyelids was drooping, adding to the general impression of inebriation.

"It wasn't staggering around and we didn't breathalyze it but there were two little bottles of Schapps in the immediate vicinity," said Otruba. "We took it to a local bird expert who has treated alcoholized birds before and she has been giving it lots of water."

The bird will be released once it has sobered up, police said.

18th-Jan-2011 10:35 am - Owl Medallion Meltdown!
some of my kids
Recently I've been trying to purge, destash, unclutter, etc. my erm, entire world. At one point in time I was actually collecting owl medallions but now I've realized that maybe I was going too far. Figurines is one thing but I'm now officially suffering from owl medallion meltdown and figured I'd share a few of my prized pieces with this community. Eventually they will fall into more appreciative hands through my etsy shop. Feel free to browse my shop if you want to look at more images of each medallion.

I'm just posting one of each here. The rest are behind the cut.Collapse )
