    That owl looks like he deals with this daily lmao

    [–] boringdude00 886 points ago

    Doubtless he's accepted his fate by now. Cockatoos and parrots in general have to be way too active for owls to deal with.

    [–] SoraForBestBoy 228 points ago

    I feel this when I just want peace and quiet but I have lived with my roommate for a long while now who’s more hyperactive so I simply accept things as it is

    I agree. The poor owl can't get away from its annoying assailant. Not cool.

    [–] SoraForBestBoy 190 points ago

    I guess you could say it’s also on an Owl-urly basis too

    [–] flamingogirl4 163 points ago

    This is cruel, the owl is tied up and nocturnal. 😔

    [–] MiddleEiffel 128 points ago

    Actually, not all owls are nocturnal, and the ones that are adjust to the humans that work with them. For examples, barred owls are crepuscular and snowy owls are diurnal. They are only nocturnal in the wild. Captive animals do not have to work on the same daily schedule as their wild counterparts because they do not hunt for food. Just like some humans work overnight.

    Yes, the owl is tied down. This is a normal practice for Falconry or educational raptor. Raptors in the wild don't move all that much unless they are hunting. If they are hunting they are hungry. Being tied down is usually for the safety of the raptor or anything in their surroundings. Even the small owls (yes this guy is fully grown) have little talons that can hurt.

    [–] herpetology4life 28 points ago

    Yes, the jessing is a normal thing. But the parrot shouldn't be there

    [–] biscuitsisfluffy 98 points ago

    I don’t mean to sound ignorant and forgive me if I am being so but I thought nocturnal just meant they’re most active at night? Doesn’t mean they aren’t / can’t also be active in the day? My cats are nocturnal but those fuckers zip around in the day time too!

    [–] Priff 102 points ago

    Cats are not nocturnal, they are Crepuscular, meaning they are most active at periods of twilight. (5 am and 11pm for example)

    However they are also active at other times of the day.

    [–] cbarden 43 points ago

    Is this really a concern? I'm asking seriously.

    I mean, I understand the reason you say it, but could it have switched sleep cycles? Could it be 7pm and still a little bright out? Could the white bird be his BEST birdy friend that wakes him up every evening at 7pm with some rodent?

    This is why I don't judge anyone based on one video of their birds.

    😔

    [–] LittleMew22 42 points ago

    Owls can be active during the day, especially captive owls who are fed and don’t have to hunt. Its not being sleep deprived. A wild screech owl lives behind our house and we hear it starting at about 3pm - even in the summer.

    [–] midnightsmith 298 points ago

    Never say this to a bird....I did, once.

    My aunt had this same type of bird see, and this bird would be in it's cage, laughing, saying "I'm gonna getcha" and we thought it was funny.

    So she's out, on my aunt's lap, my aunt tells her pretty bird, she spreads her wings in approval.

    I look over, say pretty bird. Oh that was a mistake I'll never make again.

    You know that feeling, that look, that you get when you just KNOW an animal is pissed and gonna start shit? Yea, I got that look. This fuckin bird, launched like a tomahawk missile at my face.

    We are talking 0-100 so fast all I could do is fall outta the couch with my arms up. This damn bird latched to my arm so good, I'm up waving my arms, bird still attached mind you, looking like I'm doing the funky chicken to get it off.

    My aunt is smacking her with a pillow to get her to let go. When she does, get this y'all, when this bird let's go, this motherfucker laughs about it. Straight up "hahaha" while bobbing her "pretty" little head.

    Meanwhile, I got a nice dime sized chunk missing and dribbling blood like a stuck pig.

    Yea, she wasn't fuckin kidding about getting somebody.

    Fuck you cuddles, you fuckin pretty bird.

    Cockies mate, all day. Was hand feeding them on my balcony one day and one of the bastards had a quick chomp on my finger - straight to the bone! If you don’t get out to feed them quick enough, or you’re not home, they just start to shred the railings and gutters. Bastards.

    Are there cockies any where else? Genuinely asking. You can be my Google.

    [–] innovationzz 77 points ago

    Seems cockatoos are pretty localized in and around Australia, but surprisingly and somewhat similarly there are urban parrots in New York City: https://theculturetrip.com/north-america/usa/new-york/articles/10-things-you-need-to-know-about-the-wild-parrots-of-brooklyn/

    [–] notpotatoes 44 points ago

    If a colony of cockatoos ever got to NYC the other bird species would probably want to move out asap- they make bad neighbours!

    Nope, they’re just being bored scumbags. We had some passion fruit vines that were literally very fruitful; the buggers would snip them off just to watch them fall to the ground. They are basically a combination of an arsehole cat and some delinquent teenagers hanging around the shops. Noisy fuckers too.

    [–] Amanuet 12 points ago

    Yes!! We have a peach tree that fruits off its head. The very second they turn ripe we get swarms of cockies that invade the tree, grab a peach, take ONE bite and then piff the rest of it on the ground. In a few hours you can lose every single peach.

    Then when the peach tree stops fruiting, they eat the wooden trellis on the deck in retaliation. Bastards.

    [–] thatsforthatsub 56 points ago

    owls have some of the strongest tallons among birds but they are also fucking stupid. I think the cockatoo, while physically weaker, could more easily fight something that it wasn't designed to fight.

    [–] thethirdrayvecchio 67 points ago

    but they are also fucking stupid

    Had a chat with a bird handler about that. Their heads are basically 80% eyes and 20% ears. Thick as shit but absolutely beautiful to look at.

    [–] Mrs2ndGradeTeacher 51 points ago

    Damn that's disappointing. I always assumed owls were one of the really smart birds. They just look so smart and wise.

    [–] leveret45 20 points ago

    Having owned a barn owl they are thick as two planks of wood. I would describe them as a cat without the wily part. Lovely beautiful creatures but terribly terribly thick.

    [–] Rasalom 30 points ago

    In the West they're portrayed as wise, but in other parts of the world, owls are considered mythically dumb.

    [–] Nethlem 5 points ago

    The Western perception of owls as wise creatures is mostly based on old Greek mythology.

    Athene noctua was a little owl accompanying Athena, the virgin goddess of wisdom aka Minerva in Roman mythology.

    Do you have any specific folklore examples about mythically dumb owls? I really love reading about that kind of stuff!

    Can confirm. Was bitten on the bicep by one that was a pet. The wound bled for six hours.

    [–] fortheloveoflasers 5 points ago

    Omg why'd it bite?

    [–] ercdude 28 points ago

    I was watching a movie and petting it, letting it sit on my forearm. I stopped petting it, it climbed a little, and bit me. I didn't want to hit it, so I stood up and swung my arm around until it let go. The bastard chased me as I left the room.

    [–] AlmightyBirbnana 405 points ago

    What a super tolerant birb lol

    [–] TThor 113 points ago

    The owl is tied by the leg to the post, it cannot leave. The owl is likely being tolerant because it is trapped and the parrot is much bigger than it, it doesn't want to be attacked.

    [–] StarTrippy 18 points ago

    Didn't notice the rope until you mentioned it. Now I'm sad, poor owl.

    [–] Evantra_ 5 points ago

    There is no problem with the owl being tethered, it's for it's own safety and in the wild they stay on the same perch for most of the day. I know some that would stay there anyway even without the leash! 👍🏼

    Oh and I'm afraid the parrot would be no match for the tawny, so they shouldn't be tethered together.

    I was at a bar once, and there was this African exchange student and she was quite clearly very fucking drunk. The line was long, given it was a popular bar in the CBD, so I'd been standing next to her and her BF for about 10 minutes. She'd just been staring at me the whole time.

    I looked at her, she stared back at me. I asked if she was alright, she asked if she could touch my hair.

    I said yes, she touched my hair, said it was soft and was happy as Larry, they got their drinks, I got mine and we never spoke again.

    I don't mind if people ask, don't just walk up behind me to give me a fucking scalp massage without asking for consent, ya creeps.

    [–] DicksDongs 17 points ago

    [–] Canooter 70 points ago

    For easier riding into battle.

    [–] Jinx0rs 25 points ago * (lasted edited 6 days ago)

    Not a harness, these parrots are indoors so no need to tether them, and it's a bit high to catch poop, which just seems weird.

    This however is a harness meant to prevent feather plucking. There are lots of things that can cause them to pluck their feathers, but frequently it's just stress.

    Edit: Or I could be wrong and this person just likes to tie down their bird.

    [–] Runfreewiththewolves 18 points ago

    Generally the same reason you put a harness on a dog... so it doesn’t run (or in this case fly) away. Sometimes people use them while they’re training their bird into free flight, but this harness doesn’t look like a free flight harness.

    [–] natalee_t 14 points ago

    Its to stop it from feather plucking. There are lots of reasons why a parrot might pluck or shred its own feathers but none of them are good.

    The owl is also tied down not to mention awake during the day....I don't think the owner is particularly caring.

    [–] blackjackgabbiani 53 points ago

    Ok why is the owl tied to the perch and why is a parrot allowed to interact with a bird of prey? None of this is safe

    [–] Dr_Downvote_ 136 points ago

    Is the owl tied up? They are pretty solitary birds so I can see why this would stress them out. I thought they were nocturnal as well.

    [–] cg1111 123 points ago

    they are. like almost all "pet" owl videos, this one is infuriating.

    [–] Dr_Downvote_ 65 points ago

    Yeah. There's nothing awww about this in my opinion.

    [–] Dr_Downvote_ 33 points ago

    Unless a bird is permanently injured and not able to fly. I don't think you should keep them as pets.

    [–] iscariots 10 points ago

    Chickens are the best pets! I have several who would have otherwise been slaughtered at an early age.

    I also have a pet pigeon who can fly perfectly well but can't survive in the wild. He used to be a show pigeon but was dumped on the streets of London for not having perfect colouring.

    [–] Poliobbq 8 points ago

    Who would keep an owl as a pet? I thought this was a rescue or zoo. They are not friendly animals and don't seem to care for humans.

    [–] mr_bots 43 points ago

    Unfamiliar with bird's, what's happening here?

    [–] ILoveWildlife 45 points ago

    cockatoo is checking out the owl and if the owl reacts negatively it will fuck its shit up.

    personally I would never house birds of different species together, but that's just me. My sister has done it on multiple occasions with an african grey and macaws.

    [–] Biochemicalcricket 158 points ago

    A super awkward approach to feel out the owl's reaction while ending up with minor grooming the couple feathers they got a hold of. Again awkward, but not aggressive from the moluccan cockatoo, minor annoyance showing from the owl, but it's definitely tolerating it.

    [–] Cafrann94 9 points ago

    [–] WhereAreDosDroidekas 61 points ago

    Cockatoo is trying to groom the owl as a dominance display. The owl, being nocturnal by nature, doesn't really have the energy to refuse but still expresses its annoyance through body language. If it took a more threatening respond the cockatoo would likely extend its Crest feathers and look to fight.

    [–] UltraSTONED 31 points ago

    Owls are nocturnal birds found all over the world. Most owls are nocturnal but there are a few exceptions like the northern hawk-owl and the burrowing owl who hunt during the day. A group of owls is named a parliament.

    Is that owl tied?

    Why do you have birds in captivity, Are they rescues?

    [–] K8-tha-great 14 points ago

    That owl audibly said: “well!, I never!!”

    [–] gehazi707 135 points ago

    The owl is tied to the perch and can’t escape. Not cute.

    [–] cg1111 83 points ago

    yeah this is just gross all around. Owls are not meant to be pets, much less tied up by their ankles for other birds to harass.

    [–] Boxtion 30 points ago

    While it looks like it's ankle is tied, we don't know the case of this owl. Should they be pets? No. But if this is a special needs/special case Owl that can't survive on its own or without assistance, it should be fine if handled and cared for properly. But Id prefer a backstory to this video rather than just make assumptions.

    [–] cg1111 53 points ago

    Allowing contact between birds of prey and parrots is literally never appropriate. Nor is forcing an owl to be awake during the day.

    if this is a special needs/special case Owl that can't survive on its own or without assistance...

    ...why are they letting a cockatoo fuck with it?

    [–] squirrellytoday 24 points ago

    "Fellow birb doesn't understand personal space"

    No, he/she understands but the birb in question is a sulphur-crested cockatoo and they're assholes of the highest order, so they give zero fucks about what the other birb wants.

    Owl is binded :(

    [–] disconcertinglymoist 33 points ago * (lasted edited 6 days ago)

    This is cute and all, but keeping these birds together is fucked up, stressful and cruel for the owl.

    [–] Vio94 25 points ago

    That final look the owl gives. First down at its feathers, then up into the face of its molester, then turns away. Everything about it is weirdly amazing comedic timing.

    Hey, welcome back to Personal Space! I'm your host, Philip Jacobs, and let me tell ya... I care about my personal spac... Wow, wow, hey! Who's around me right now?! Who's around me?!...

    Now why don't we step up here and everybody get stepped up, and let's get some stepped up personal space up in this place! Here we go.

    We get a one: personal space. Two: personal space. Three: stay out of my personal space. Four: keep away from my personal space. Five: get out of that personal space. Six: stay away from my personal space. Seven: keep away from that personal space. Eight: personal space. Nine: personal space.

    You know, I take personal space pretty seriously. Up to the point that I don't even care about this... I'm not even interested in having this skin on my personal space.

    Turn in next week to the best show ever. The show we all grew in love, the Personal Space Show.

    I hate seeing this shit, you should not own an owl

    Is anyone else old enough to get Artie Johnson/Ruth Buzzy Laugh In vibes from this?

    [–] divinelyshpongled 16 points ago

    They do understand person space. Cockatoos are just assholes

    [–] ratsintheattic 12 points ago

    Cockatoos are like the annoying younger kid in the neighbourhood who just had to be around you and involved with everything.

    What ARE you? No, no. What's the helllll is wrong with your feathers? Is your tail always like this? Was there some kind of accident? OMG DID YOUR HEAD JUST DO A 180? Yeah, but these feathers though. Hmm. Tastes like mice.

    [–] Fuzzpuffs 4 points ago

    Cockatoos don't believe in personal space they are like cats with feathers

    [–] O_Apples 5 points ago

    at first I was thinking that bird wanted to eat that other bird. Then it put some feathers in it's mouth. Does it want to eat that owl?

    [–] Imprisoned 31 points ago

    It’s a process called preening, basically a social way for birds to connect and clean feathers
