    I can hear Mom’s voice: “You stop calling him names, and he won’t keep hitting you!! And you, stop hitting her, and she will stop calling you names!!”

  2. Hovertext, bwahahahahaha!

  3. LOVE LOVE LOVE the classic Simpsons reference!!! ^_^

  4. There’s a Simpson’s quote for everything.

  5. PS I now must have watched this about 400X. It’s oddly comforting.

  6. I know the owl is all super chill. no problem… boid.

  7. my day in a nutshell.

  8. Jerk bird. :p

  9. Madame X says:

    Poor owl! Must be a pitirre (Gray Kingbird) – those little boidies are fearless… and vicious!

  10. The swallows who nested in the eaves of our house used to do that to my dog until he didn’t react anymore. That way they knew he would go after the babies when they started flying.

  11. Martha in Washington says:

    Next is “Mom, he’s touching me!” “No, I’m not!” “Yes, you are!” “No, I’m not!” “Are too!” “Am not!” Ad nauseum…

  12. Followed by “Don’t make me pull this car over!” LOL.

  13. Classic! Reminds me of my sisters and how we used to torment each other. Ha. An ornithological reenactment of my childhood…

  14. Birds just don’t know what’s good for them. I would catch ravens picking on bald eagles when I lived in Alaska. Then there’s the video I once saw of a crow pecking at a cat’s tail and darting away . . . until the cat whipped around too fast, took a flying leap, and bagged itself a crow. Not smart, crow, not smart at all.

  15. So what you’re saying is…

    the cat kinda ended up..

    wait for it…

    eating crow?

  16. For the win!! :)

  17. The owl’s gonna have a giant welt on his head by the time that bird gives up. :)

    Heard this in Bart’s voice!

  19. Ah hem.

    Shouldn’t the proper caption be:

    Owl. Quittit.
    Owl. Quittit.
    Owl. Quittit.

    Yes, Lucy, yes it should. :)

  21. I wonder whether the little bird deliberately grabbed the owl, or thought that the owl was a tree branch or something, and flew away as soon as it felt feathers rather than bark on its claws.

  22. I doubt it. This looks like a slice of classic mobbing behavior.

    It’s quite possible that the gif only shows one dive bombing, in what was actually a series of birds who came together and attacked the owl one after another.

    OK, I watched this at work, and laughed so hard, I attracted a crowd. This is awesome!
