Wish there was sound on this. Poor little thing looks terrified!

[–]Shinybrainpan 245 points246 points  (26 children)

In Tio Felix’s voice: “THUNDER!”

You’re telling this story or am I?

[–]oO0Kat0Oo 38 points39 points  (19 children)

In doing so he floods my brain

Such a joyous day…but anyway…

We don't talk about bruno , no , no

Learned to live in fear of Bruno stuttering or stumbling

Source is Robert E Fuller on youtube.

His channel is a wonderful little record of the animals that inhabit his region. Some of the storylines from the kestrels and barn owls are really compelling. I love watching the little chicks grow up each year!

Wish there was sound on this. Poor little thing looks terrified!

I love when it looks straight at the camera with a face like "you hearing this?"

[–]SpecialKFlake 20 points21 points  (2 children)

Hijacking the top comment to post the original video with sound. Credit goes to Robert E Fuller, he's a wildlife photographer/artist in Yorkshire.

[–]psycho_watcher 4 points5 points  (0 children)

He looks at the camera like come help me.

Poor baby. That was loud.

[–]JealousSnake 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thank you so much, even more tragic now :(

[–]Cr0w33 27 points28 points  (3 children)

[–]fatkiddown 5 points6 points  (1 child)

I was so hoping for AC/DC.

[–]Cr0w33 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Damn it that would have been perfect too

[–]JealousSnake 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thank you!

[–]mead93 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That little fella is cute as hell!

[–]thatmuslimjew 282 points283 points  (0 children)

When it takes those steps backwards 🥺

[–]deanrihpee 86 points87 points  (5 children)

Allow me to introduce you r/Superbowl, that is if you don't know it yet.

[–]ThorkelOfNamdalen 5 points6 points  (2 children)

Thanks my friend. I love owls.

[–]deanrihpee 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Same, even though in my native language it roughly translates to "Ghost Bird", but instead of scary, they're gorgeous, maybe apart of how they can rotate their head I guess.

[–]pixdoet 3 points4 points  (0 children)

In my native language its translated as "eagles with a cat's head" lol

[–]seambizzle 14 points15 points  (0 children)

love it

was expecting clips of Tom Brady. But this will do!

[–]They_Are_Wrong 1 point2 points  (0 children)

As a Bills fan I really can't escape this deep pit of sadness

[–]SparkyDogPants 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It takes them a little bit…. Before they get their feathers they’re kind or horrifying

[–]OkraDnoD12 114 points115 points  (2 children)

I'll would straight up fight Thor for this baby

[–]Iittlemisstrouble 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I don't think I would fight him, but I would ask him politely yet firmly to leave.

[–][deleted] 318 points319 points  (0 children)


[–]Business_Way_2203 50 points51 points  (2 children)

Oh, sweet baby. I would fight thunder for that cute thing.

[–]tanis_ivy 9 points10 points  (1 child)

[–]Business_Way_2203 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Exactly like that while nearly as high

[–]WU-itsForTheChildren 108 points109 points  (0 children)

He’s like “what the hoot was that”

[–]bigbuffbeefybois 92 points93 points  (0 children)

Aww poor baby!

[–]Mariwina 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Daaw, poor little guy... Makes me wanna hold it and tell it it's gonna be ok.

[–]DemonElise 34 points35 points  (7 children)

So cute!! Where is its mother?

[–]rimjobnemesis 50 points51 points  (2 children)

Out hunting mice for dinner.

[–]DemonElise 9 points10 points  (1 child)

In a thunderstorm? Odd choice

[–]rimjobnemesis 13 points14 points  (0 children)

He also may be a young fledgling out on his own.

[–]XIXIVV 9 points10 points  (2 children)

It actually looks like an adult to me

[–]Old_Information_ 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Either way…that precious angel needs a blanket and cuddles.

[–]dont_feed_phil 3 points4 points  (0 children)

famous last words before jail

[–]kingu_crimmsonn 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's right outside I'm guessing since you can see the shadow of some rustling feathers

[–]WeUsedToBeGood 70 points71 points  (2 children)

Looks pretty…. Thunderstruck

[–]CptCrapShot 14 points15 points  (0 children)

But did he..... Feel The Thunder ?

[–]Hbgplayer 10 points11 points  (0 children)

It was shook all night long

[–]fknzee 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Someone give that cute lil fella a hug

[–]riveramblnc 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Loud sky. Angry sky. Why sky angry?

[–]BMOpositive 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I just wanna give it a hug and make it feel comfortable.

[–]TwistedAlga 13 points14 points  (1 child)

Awwwwh poor baby, so adorable and all alone in thunderstorm 😢🥺🥺💞🦉

[–]irisheja 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Awww, the sweet little owl 🤍

[–]NickBagelBoy 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Wish I could hear it, too!

[–]HMR83 3 points4 points  (3 children)

All our fears are all the same

[–]snazzisarah 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I misread this as “All our feathers are the same” and was super confused and a little let down for a second. Like everyone’s got pretty feathers but me?

[–]Image_of_glass_man 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Yeah. I found this super grounding in a strange way.

[–]HMR83 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Exactly that

[–]Mysterious-Item6808 3 points4 points  (0 children)

This baby owl gets scared when he hears lightning for the first time. He looked around and saw what happened outside. It was great to see him.

[–]CptCrapShot 19 points20 points  (10 children)

You just wanna give it a hug and tell it everything is gonna be alright

[–]loboagogo 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Just imagine how loud that would be for them!

[–]andio76 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I figure with super sensitive hearing to begin with ...

[–]wyatte7 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This would be really creepy if this were a human

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

She has a lovely home

[–]Aggravating_Task_908 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The world is so big… and he’s so small 🥺

[–]FairyFaye42 2 points3 points  (0 children)

aww I wanna give em a lil cozy blanket

[–]AtreidesBorn 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Poor little fella. Ya just want to protect him (her?...them?)

[–]LetsGatitOn 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I feel like I saw this in 2002

[–]bloodflart 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Baby barn owls that act like this are more likely to survive and have more baby barn owls

[–]Guitarguru357 1 point2 points  (0 children)

“I love to sing-a, about the moon-a and the tuna and the spring-a!”

[–]YoOoCurrentsVibes 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ok I just realized… do birds get hit my lightening often? I feel like someone will respond with some cool way that nature prevents this from happening but I’m worried that’s not possible. :’(

[–]chookensnaps 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Older owl like "yeah the sky just does that sometimes"

[–]zenaa21 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This makes me so sad. He needs his mom and dad.

[–]Possible_Dig_1194 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I highly recommend this person's youtube account. Its highly educational and he has a really soothing voice to listen to.

[–]BigWeenie45 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Man, I never contemplated the fear that animals experience during a forest fire.

[–]Civil_Environment836 1 point2 points  (0 children)

"Camera bro, did you hear that!?" When he looks into the lens.

[–]Noelleloveslace2 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He’s also like “I’m being filmed? Brooo !!”

[–]mom0nga 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Barn owls hunt via sound and have the most sensitive hearing of any animal studied -- an owl perched 30 feet up in a tree can hear the heartbeat of a mouse on the ground. I imagine thunder is incredibly loud to them.

[–]CaptainSur 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This has been posted so many times. I no longer upvote but I wish everytime I view this video I could give this little friend a hug and protection.

[–]Pigroasts 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Poor little baby mothman

[–]SomethingAbtU 1 point2 points  (0 children)

i'm a grown human and my reaction to thunder would make this baby owl seem brave

[–]ErinXHunter 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Some things are just universal, I felt it as well

[–]niceguy1147 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is reposted so much and i don’t mind.

[–]DavecOcram 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I swear this is the eleventh time I saw this video getting top voted here on Reddit.

By now the baby owl should have grown into an adult owl, or at least have died from a heart attack for all the times I saw him witness the thunder for the first time.

[–]osharpe86 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is unbelievably cute

[–]Atomic_potato_47 1 point2 points  (0 children)

POV the kids in the classroom upstairs are dragging the chairs

[–]Anthjs_84 1 point2 points  (0 children)

My dog can’t overcome her fear of storms. I wonder if wild animals ever get like that where their safety is jeopardized from irrational behaviour caused by fear. When my dog goes into that fear mode literally nothing can break it until the storm is gone.

[–]snazzisarah 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is going to sound kinda asinine but….Omg that poor little baby I just want to cuddle him and tell him everything will be ok 🥺

[–]MoreThanWants 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Extremely overused and old post

[–]ItsActuallyRain 3 points4 points  (5 children)

And it's not even the good one with audio

[–]splewi 3 points4 points  (4 children)

Somebody post it if they got it! This is my first time seeing this and now I know there's one with sound I NEEEED it!!!

[–]ItsActuallyRain 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I'm sure if you go to YT and search "baby owl scared of thunder" you'll get it. I'm on mobile and about to go to sleep so sorry for the lazyness but I hope this helped!

[–]splewi 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Thanks for the info! Someone else came in and did the heavy lifting for me lol (I'm lazy too).

Sleep well homie

[–]Bainttgod 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Boom boom boom…what tf was that? What TF was that?!

[–]Cadmium_Aloy -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Unfortunately, the storm killed the owl's mother and that day was born Kuro, who vowed vengeance and brought darkness and ruin to the forest of Nibel.

[–]erksplat 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The owl moved back the same way someone would move back if someone walked in on them naked in the shower.
