Harry Potter and the PSA by lyosha Harry Potter and the PSA by lyosha
This was prompted by one of the barn owls I work with-- during a presentation, when I wasn't quick enough to call her to the glove, she spontaneously decided to land on my shoulder-- talons and all. It was Not Pleasant.

I would imagine that having a bird five times larger than a barn owl suddenly land on your shoulder would be a bit of a problem, magic or no magic!

I don't have any experience with owls, but my dad does - and he got a pretty nasty gouge from a juvenile barn owl. I can only imagine what one of these freaking winged goliaths would do.

I enjoy working with our eagles more than our barn owls, yeah.

I just love the second panel. ^^ The owl looks so lovable, yet so huge!!

I've actually seen one of these in person recently. HUGE birds! And the one I saw was only 5 years old, so she probably had some room to grow still.

(Their wingspans are insanely huge, too. There was a very impressive FLOOF of wind, which made the 3-foot-tall fan blowing behind it seem barely noticeable in comparison, when that bird started flapping around!)

Birds don't grow like mammals do. An eagle owl reaches its adult weight/size within three months of hatching, so a 5-year-old is absolutely as big as she'll ever be. Weight fluctuates within limits. But yeah, they're massive birds! :)
