Whoo Loves You?

Little old lady owl finds it rather eye-opening when this nice young man gets to nose her.

Why, Sonny, I haven’t felt like this since 1927!

“I got some great shots of the owls that have been living on our school playground in Golden, CO where I am a teacher’s assistant. I can’t believe they have decided to take up residence in our trees considering the children are quite loud when they are outside for recess! They (the owls- and some of the kids) are super adorable. The babies are Hooter, Scooter, and Pooter! The mom is just… mom.” -Amanda M. B.

How Cold Is It? Part II

It’s so cold, the artists formerly known as Snowy Owls have confirmed they now want to be known as I Wanna Go To Miami Owls.

An invasion of Snowy Owls, the magically beautiful bird of the Arctic (and Harry Potter), has been reported this winter across the Midwest, Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states. One has made it all the way to Little Talbot Island, near Jax, Florida! That is a real Snow Bird invasion.

A Table For Whoo, Please

By stalking RocketNews 24 methodically and patiently patrolling The Interwebs, CO has managed to keep a pretty firm eye on All Things J. (As in All Things Japan.) Sometimes, though, we come across something that’s a hoot.*

Take for example, Owl Cafés!!! We’ve documented Kitteh Cafés, but this takes it to a ‘nuther level. Check these photos out! (Photos from Kotaku.com and Design Taxi.)

Some Sad Fum News Here, People

Remember Fum and Gebra? The kitteh and owl BFF Dynamic Duo we featured back in April? Sad to report that Fum passed away early last month- he was 3 years old. :(

What Is Wise?

It’s having a real smug smile and a 50 yard stare. Everyone thinks you know stuff when you look like that. I’m practicing right now.

“CO Doesn’t Feature Enough Owls”

That’s what a reader wrote. Well, we appreciate the feedback, and consider that gross injustice FIXED right here and now.

First off, here’s a Saw-Whet Owl cooling off at the Blanford Nature Center in Grand Rapids, MI. Video sent in by Cuteporter Karen.

Then, we got a lengthy email from the owl eagle-eyed Peter G. Check the hovers for Peter’s description of this Owl Rhode Island ResQte!

(AND learn about donating to the Born To Be Wild Nature Center.)
