I would suppose that would apply to any bird.
That said, I remember one time that I jumped a small creek. I was looking down so as to try to keep my feet out of the water. When I landed on the other side and took a step or two until my momentum stopped. only then did I lift my head up and found myself about 2 foot from a Screech Owl.
