I like owls. I would definitely like a pet owl. But not Frank. He’s a miserable bastard. A different owl.
There are so many things that I didn’t know about owls. At least this way I know a smidge more about these ten owls in particular. I have just signed up to Liza’s twitter feed and I’m blown away.
You should check out Sydney’s Third Reich Re-enactment Youtube Channel. It’s brilliant. His hooting sounds so much like Hitler it’s uncanny.
