Watch this: Owl uses exceptional hearing to catch prey from under snow


This is an incredible video: Barn Owls have a disk-shaped face that is said to resemble a heart. This disk is not decorative—it performs an important function. The owl's ears are placed asymetrically on the sides of its head. The disk around the face helps to funnel sound into the owl's ears and allows it to zero in on the exact location of prey - even in total darkness. They have the best hearing of any animal tested. The Barn Owl's face can be thought of as the outer part called pinnae) of its ears with the sole purpose of directing sound into the ear openings. Barn owls are capable of locating and capturing prey solely by sound, although they also have excellent night vision. This "satellite dish" on the Barn Owl's face is so important it has a unique accessory that no other owl has: a special "comb" on one toe of each foot, which is used to comb the disk and keep it in good shape.

  1. Interesting but why is this on a site calling itself 'Bigfoot Evidence'?

    1. he has a point,inmy thinking too, its nothing to do with the subject matter of the site. may as well show a rock concert or real madrid v barcelona football match as they are 'awesome to!

      As you are American football is a highly popular sport in all the world[excludoing USA who prefer girls games[rounders we call it,u call baseball or basketball which is called netball in UK and played by girls] or sports where you are so padded up its embarressing]and madrid against barcalona is the best game in the world for class football.

      Anyway this has nothing to do with Bigfoot. Also being from UK this documentary is good[not awesome,thats some over used American wird] but 6/7years old.zzzzzzzzzz

  4. As it clearly states on the video caption: this is a Great Grey Owl, not a Barn Owl.

    Accuracy is everything.

  5. Nice, a tribute to the Owl God, sometimes known as Molech or Moloch.

    Check the opening 'Cremation of Care' ceremony at Bohemian Grove in California.

  6. Owls are bad ass.....you'd think a Gamecock would have a chance against an Owl but they don't. I've found their carcasses numerous times in the morning when I was feeding and watering them.

  7. No lemmings were harmed in the making of this video. Well, except for the one that was eaten by the owl.

  8. The Real Knower Here,

    I've barely posted on this site, only 2 see that 90% of the posts that say "knower" were not written by me, but by several clever trolls.

    Don't take anything they say seriosely. Yes, the suit will come to light WITHIN a 16 week period. And yes, the paper is finished. And yes, i've spoken with an insider regarding Area x and the hoaxins on there. Thats pretty much it.

    Gonna go back to lurking. I'ts a bit hard to give out free info i've learned on a site where almost every poster is talking about anal sex all day.

    I will divulge my info to another site.

    It's been great guys.

    Enjoy the suit.

    And any posts from now on that say "the knower" no matter how well written, are simply not by me, but by trolls just making up shite and saying "the knower" at the end.

    Pro Tip: There is no Bigfoot.

    Yours Faithfully in Footin,
    The True Knower.
