The Cornell Labs Gang Is BACK

Last month, we told you about the “singing” Owls featured on the Cornell University Labs webcam. Now, they’re back and they brought a little (unwelcome) friend with them.

And Now For Something Truly Out There

And it’s NOT from The Big J, if you can believe it. We’ve got Owls. Singing.

It’s Owl Awareness Day?

HOOOOO knew about this? Well, the Oregon Zoo did (been there, wonderful place) and they put a video together for Owl Lovers everywhere! (Speakers UP, please.)

“Hi C.O.! I emailed you a link from the Boulder Daily Camera, and there was no spot to add a message. Nederland, CO is in the mountains SW of Boulder. (And the home of the annual Frozen Dead Guy Days.) How cute is this guy? How come I can’t happenstance upon something like this, ever?” -Laura W.
