The Transformer: A great horned owl does a super-stretch

Before they fly off to go hunting in the evening, great horned owls often preen themselves and stretch. This owl almost turned himself inside out.

The big owls haven’t been visiting us much lately, and they’ve only occasionally been using the perch you see in this video; this clip is a couple of years old. But we noticed that we hadn’t published it – it was languishing in our archives – and we think it’s fascinating. Better late than never.
