"Excuse me, is this head taken?"
"No? Great, thanks. Don’t mind my talons."
The handsome bird has been head-perching for some time…
Fortunately, Menno Shaefer, a 48-year-old from Zaandam, Netherlands, managed to document the trouble-maker. Shaefer had this to say to the NL Times, “Whilst photographing the owl, it did try to land one my head once, however, as soon as I lifted my camera to get a shot, the owl flew onto my neighbor standing by my side. It was a very funny thing to watch, however I’m just as confused as anyone as to why it does this.”
A number of citizens over the past several months have reported being made into a perch by the bird, and many believe he may have escaped from an aviary.
Which is a logical assumption, seeing as most wild birds don’t feel the innate urge to land on human beings, let alone their heads.
