    That owl looks super overweight.

    [Holy cow, that video is, well, 'a hoot'! When it turns sideways and makes that scary face, I nearly lost it]


    Nice series. That first shot is my fave. (Looks almost like a cross between an eagle and a penguin, heehee.) What a powerful beak it has.

    It IS a cross between an eagle and a penguin. That is if you call an eagle with a penguin in its belly a cross ... :lmao:

    Call me a skeptic, but I have my doubts that "owls" were the original thought on that search that is linked by Easy Target. :lol:

    I think the 1st shot might be a Steller's Sea Eagle

    The first one is a Steller and the 2 and 3 is also a Steller, juvenile though. I like the third shot best, shame there is a lot of empty space at the right side of the pic.
    The blowing up bit in the video is pretty cool, i saw a European Eagle owl do that once when i stepped into his enclosure........that thing was HUGE. Pretty cool to see though :)
