I met a girl who used to take care of owls for rich people who had them as pets.

“I’m a Hootenanny.”

Dead crows

There were many dead crows on highways in the Rocky Mountains this year. Ornithologists suspected it was due to vehicles hitting the crows.

This was surprising because crows have adapted to feeding on carcasses by having two birds watching from the trees while two birds feed. If there is a vehicle coming, two crows will shout out so the other birds can fly away.

After analyzing the accidents, it was found that 80% of crows were killed by trucks and only 20% were killed by cars.

Turns out crows are really good at yelling “caw caw caw” and not good at yelling “truck truck truck.”

A great hobby 

My friend was staring at some women…

Because they were chicks he claimed it was birdwatching.


A group of bird watchers is out in the woods and sees a wild condor flying in the sky. Everybody is elbowing each other, pointing at the bird and focusing their binoculars. Then they hear a gunshot and the bird falls out of the sky! 

The bird watchers all go running to where the bird fell and find that a disheveled man has already plucked the bird and is getting ready to roast him on a spit. Of course, the bird watchers take him in and press charges. 

The judge informs him of the serious nature of killing a bird that’s on the endangered species list and asks if he has anything to say before sentencing. The man tells the judge that he had been separated from his hunting party for several days, was lost in the woods, and might have starved if he didn’t shoot the Wild Condor. 

The judge listens to his story and sets him free based on the premise that he was just doing what he had to do to survive. 

As the man was leaving the courthouse he was confronted by a group of reporters and one shouted out “What did it taste like?” The man hesitated for a bit and then said “Well, it was kind of a cross between a Spotted Owl and a Bald Eagle.”
