Well said, Dylan.. very well said. And it could just be me, but some of the posts and photos about people's experiences with him tend to make me wonder. From what I've heard, this Owl's flown right at a few people.. which I guess really doesn't mean they were too close, but just makes me wonder.. does he just have a high tolerance for people.. or does it happen because he is annoyed?
