Rachel’s Team Pick: Hungover Owls

These owls are hungover. I’m not proud, but this is Very Relevant To My Interests.

“On the bright side, I can probably work through most of my self-loathing before anybody else wakes up. Score.”

  1. but srsly, I can probably work through my hangover issued before these owls give me serious contact….then I’m bringing it. (as a Southern Hemisphere resident, I don’t see why we aren’t celebrating). ANZAC EASTER DAY OFF WORK.

  2. I fucking love owls. I was staying at a friend’s, and I heard a Screech Owl and a Barred Owl. My friend has a CD of owl calls, so we brought his laptop outside and played the Barred call repeatedly. Within a few minutes, 5 or 6 owls were gathered around calling. One flew right near us, so awesome. My friend’s friend saw a Saw-Whet in Brooklyn one time.

    • At my old house, a barred owl used to perch in the big maple tree outside my bedroom window. When it would hoot its call, who cooks for youuuu, I loved the fabulous exhaley trill in the youuuu. Breathtaking.
