Wow, really beautiful and interesting shots and a nice description of the stretch routine!

Indeed! Would be easy to just shrug it off and let nature deal with it but thankfully they didn't and the little owls have a whole life ahead of them!

Oops, something went wrong with my post and pics and link went missing, good you found them!

Haha indeed! The translation was a bit off in some parts but at least it made a good laugh!

I find it odd they didn't mention the species but Ural Owl is a good guess! They are called "viirupöllö" (striped owl) in Finnish.

Huuhkaja is the only owl without "pöllö" in its name. "Pöllö" is sometimes to describe something as "silly" or "stupid", we could say "are you an owl" to ask if someone is being dumb - which is a bit strange because owls are not considered stupid animals, quite the opposite!

Haha well it's an interesting language and definitely not the easiest one to learn, so prepare to spend some time should you dive deeper into it! :D

One could say "oletko ihan pöllö?" - "are you a total owl?" meaning "are you stupid?" (silly/dumb, in a softer way), or "ei pöllömpi idea!" "not owlier an idea!" meaning "not a stupid idea!". Not a commonly used expression though.

Take a full-suspension carbon mtb with electric shifting, hydraulic brakes, tubeless tyres etc and compare it to 1895 Singer safety bike. A lot has changed! But of course with more simple designs there aren't that many bits to develop, yet probably every part has changed to some extent since those times.

Wow, these fellas look like hawks! Interesting how versatile the owls are!

Also thank you for sharing all these great owl pics and info, I joined the group spontaneously when I saw an interesting picture on my feed and now I've kinda started to look forward new owl news - these posts often make my day! Quality stuff!

Good tip! I went and studied the Owl-natomy posts and indeed learned a lot!
