OK, these owls are obviously telling this man he's been accepted to Hogwarts but no one else seems to realize it. When it comes to owls, the Eurasian eagle-owl is known as Europe's largest owl! 

Vroege Vogels, a Dutch radio and television show about nature was surprised to hear that these large owls have made a home for themselves in one man's apartment window! A Eurasian eagle and her three giant owl chicks! And whenever the man watches television, the owls all watch with them! 

Ah, to be a Dutchman living in an art studio apartment with a family of Eurasian eagle-owls nesting in the planter outside the window. Isn't that the dream? But alas, the city is no place for these majestic owls, the owls were relocated to a near shelter soon after this video was released and have now been released into the wild where they belong. Still, it's a lovely and unusual story that makes us smile.

Injured And Rescued Snowy Owl Released Back Into The Wild

About a month ago, Atlantic Veterinary College staff found an emaciated and dehydrated snowy owl near Souris, P.E.I. and rescued it. Finally, after a month in capable hands, the beautiful bird was released back into the wild. 

As reported by CBC news, an intern with the Atlantic Veterinary College Wildlife Service, Dr. Hugo Gonzalez, said that it was "amazing" for the students and staff to see the owl fly off back into the wild. And we have to agree, seeing a wild bird released back to where it's supposed to be is always a beautiful thing. 

"To be able to see a patient who came with severe emaciation, not even able to properly move or eat, up to the point where you can see that the full recovery process has been successful and just have that moment to see her properly [fly], it's definitely an amazing moment for you," Dr. Gonzalez added. 

He also reminds people that if they ever see a snowy owl in the wild, it's important to only admire it from a distance. If you come across a bird in distress, contact local officials.

Read another beautiful story about an owl getting released back into the wild right here.

What A Hoot: 20 Owl Memes

These owl memes have got us feeling owl kinds of good! Get it? Because "owl" sounds like "all"? 

We'll stop now. 

Did you know there are up to 220 species of owls in the world? We swear we feel like we've only seen 15 or so. And that it's a myth that owls can turn their heads a full 360 degrees? Close but not all the way because that is absolutely terrifying. 

Oh, and you know those big owl eyes that stare at you with the force of a thousand suns? Yeah, apparently an owl's eyes account of 1-5% of the owl's body weight. Which is insane but also doesn't really surprise us. 

Enjoy some owl goodness on us!
