Barn Owls

I met someone a week ago who has a bunch of birds. We started speaking about them the other night and I found out that two of them are owls. So I invited myself over to hold them. 

They are pretty incredible. Their faces look like ghosts and they make a strange hissing sound when they are nervous. They don’t weigh anything, which surprised me and their feathers are really soft and fluffy. There isn’t much bird under there, it’s all feathers. 

Additionally, they have really long, curved and needle sharp talons. I was a little nervous about holding it but it was pretty calm and seemed to like being scratched on the head.
