Wordless Wednesday #92 | An Unexpected Guest.

Two days after the onslaught that was Glenda, an unexpected guest flew into my grandmother's home.
From Hogwarts? :)
Yes, it's an owl!
The poor thing must have lost its way during the typhoon, so we decided to take care of it for the meantime. Everyone was so excited to have this feathered friend around, especially my little man. He even named it 'Hedwig', after Harry Potter's ever famous owl.
Showing off.
I believe this is the Philippine Scops-Owl aka Oriental Screech Owl, though I don't remember hearing it screech while he was here.
That stare.
We were supposed to turn this guy over to the folks at DENR this week, but my grandmother decided to just let Hedwig leave on his own. She was worried that the poor thing might die, since we don't know exactly what to feed it with. I know owls eat mice and lizards and stuff like that, but how on earth am I supposed to give him those? Lol.

Anyway, it was nice meeting you, Hedwig. I hope you're safe and sound and happily eating wherever you are. :)

Ooh.. that's so sweet.. It it were me, I will bring him home too and have him treated. It is rare to see an owl. Hoping that he is safe and sound. :)

Kath Rivera said...

Wow, you're so kind to keep the owl and let it go. Some kasi once they captivated a wild animal it's hard for them to let go. Hope "Hedwig" will be safe on his way back home.

Super cute! I think you can check with the vet on the diet and if it's endangered. If not, you can keep it. :)

Jamie Wieland said...

This is an unexpected guest. An owl had invaded my cousin's house through the chimney. LOL

Lame Shrill Owl said...

I would totally be freaked out if something like that got in to my house.

Kung Phoo said...

I have never seen one up close, but i like the look of the owl.. and i believe they are good for keeping things away.

Liz said...

Wow! I'd like to have something like this. Haha. The real thing to complete my Windwright mage look. (She looks like my fb cover: https://www.facebook.com/lizziemtg)

indah nuria Savitri said...

soooo cute...and that stern look...chillin!..I love owls and really wanna see them up close and personal like that :)

MikiHope said...

Poor little guy-he must have been terrified--a typhoon and then in a cage! I am sure he is fine now that he is back where he belongs and he can find his own meals! I do think it was good that you kept him for a while until he settled down from the typhoon trauma.

Janine Daquio said...

ohhhh huhhh! <3 ... it is so adorable.. pero oo nga, it would be diificult for it to keep when it eats lizards, and etc. hahaha

Virginia Gudiel said...

What a beautiful owl! I've never seen one up close at all! How cool!

Rebecca Swenor said...

I love owls because there is mystery behind them or that is what I think. Kodos for watching over it.

Rowena Wendy Lei said...

Lucky you! What an experience! What did he eat while he was with you? :D
