beep boop, I'm a bot -|:] It is this bot's opinion that [/u/formisvcxzvxc](https://np.reddit.com/u/formisvcxzvxc/) should be banned for karma manipulation. Don't feel bad, they are probably a bot too.

A parliament of Owls decides the fate of great men no less than five stories in a dream?
I imagined the audio in this video as such sounds.
Accept my upvote.
One of them reminds me of Johnny #5 for some reason
🎵 Girls on film 🎵
I never knew that sub existed until now. XD Thank you for enlightening me.
Okay can someone edit this clip to have paparazzi shutter clicks each time they blink.
I thought it was creepy when they didn't blink. I realize it's creepier when they do.
Blink and you're dead
Definitely busted an owl rave party.
It's morse code for SOS!
At this point, I think it's their barn
*(Big Smoke voice)* "You picked the wrong barn, fool!"
Probably rodent free too!
Owl poop everywhere.
That's why you put in an [owl box](https://www.thespruce.com/barn-owl-boxes-nesting-owls-386640).
They will keep all the mess in the nice nest you built them.
They're so gorgeous to see flying and are so cute looking when stationary.
I wish I had owl boxes :-(
Who did it
Especially the way they’re looking at OP like, “Bitch, what tf you doing here!?”
Morgan Freeman narration: "and at this point, it truly was theirs".
they're barn owls
“whoo tf are you”
Cause I really wanna know
I WOKE UP IN A SOHO DOORWAY
A POLICEMAN KNEW MY NAME.
HE SAID, "YOU CAN GO SLEEP AT HOME TONIGHT, IF YOU CAN GET UP AND WALK AWAY."
I STAGGERED BACK TO THE UNDERGROUND
AND THE BREEZE BLEW BACK MY HAIR
I REMEMBER THROWING PUNCHES AROUND
AND PREACHING FROM MY CHAIR
HE SAID YOU CAN GO SLEEP AT HOME TONIGHT IF YOU CAN GET UP AND WALK AWAY
*"W-hooot are you talking ab-hoot?"*
\*guitar shredding solo\*
Owl really want to know
Owl let you know when you stop blinking at me.
Looks like they're about to have a free-for-owl.
Can't imagine that there would be a single mouse in that barn 🦉
Either that or there are a ton. If there weren't mice to eat, the owls would move elsewhere.
what a paradox!

...I now have a solution for the Australian rat infestation.
/s: anyone who knows what happened with the frogs gets why
cats to control the pest owls... ow wait.
It would have been nice to have lived the rest of my life not reading that. :-( RIP little ones.
Nah, it could also be the most easily accessible shelter out on some flat plains or near a field full of rodents.
Maybe they sleep there then go hunt mice elsewhere?
Exactly. Barns are made of warm and full of nooks and crevices. It's a fresh buffet everyday.
Just that gruffalo mouse
They love to eat cockroaches as well. Don't ask me how I know.
Nah, they're all married.
Do you have a kid locked up in the cupboard under your stairs?
That's just a cupboard kid. They bring good luck.
Wholly shit it’s spelled Cupboard! FML
If you think that's something, just wait until you find out how many W's and L's are in *holy*.
Well it’s wholly dependent on which homophone you’re talking about
Nah, nah, you see...the *entire* word is fecal substance. It's wholly shit.
How else would you spell it?
The 5th owl looks pissed off lol
Owl 3 looks like he did some kind of upper.
“HEY MY GUY! Never seen you around this barn before! OWLRIGHT! EVERBODY HAVING A GOOD TIME?!? ^I ^CAN’T ^FEEL ^MY ^BEAK
Mans traveling through space and time off a perc
That’s a DMT look. Ha!
Yeah most look suprised but you're on the nose about the 5th guy there
The 5th guy got me a lot!
#2 Is squeezed up in there, but I think it looks pretty pissed off as well.
No. 2 is just tired you see.
Only one who didn’t blink. Definitely be wary of that guy.
I think 5 and 6 are clones of one another. Or else there was a glitch in the matrix.
The 2nd owl is judging tf out of you.
Seeing as how I just watched cute owls, I should have known what this said.. But since I've been watching football for almost 12 hours, all I could see was Super Bowl, and I was left wondering what the hell a football sub had to do with this..
Anyway, nice sub!
Well there's /r/trees that beat actual arborists to it, so they had to form /r/marijuanaenthusiasts to post tree photos
Also /r/anime_titties and /r/worldpolitics, although there's a different story behind that.
Oh please, do tell.
I still think that's hilarious . I also enjoy r/JohnCena and r/potatosalad
And there's also /r/lesbians, which was claimed for porn, so lesbians had to settle for /r/actuallesbians
Of course porn is faster
Yeah, every year around the super bowl we get some confused visitors, haha.
You should see the Tree and Marijuana paradox
This should be higher. Thought that’s where I was at.
This is one of many silly things that had me laughing till I was out of breath during this last season of What We Do in the Shadows!
Hi, my girlfriend is a biologist and semi freaking out.... Are you located on the west or east? If west, Western screech owls are critically endangered so if you're in the west, she suggests reporting all these guys in your barn because this is apparently pretty significant.
EDIT: I should have been more specific.
We are located in the north western hemisphere and they are critically endangered here. These are actually a federally listed species at risk in Canada.
- the girlfriend
Where does your girlfriend get that western screech owls are critically endangered..? Sure she's not confused about a different type of owl? Because they're not endangered.
Western screech owls aren't critically endangered..?
These look like EASO due to the paler bill, although can't say for sure
They look like juvenile EASO, save #5, who may be the parent.
Why are there so many though? Do they travel in big groups like that? I think it's odd. It's like an infestation LOL.
Western Screech-Owls are not critically endangered. They are listed as “least concern” on the IUCN red list.
Interrupted a session of parliament
Edit: obligatory thanks for the awards :D
For those out of the loop, a group of owls is a parliament.
I love how random these collective nouns are. There's a wiki page about this https://en.m.wiktionary.org/wiki/Appendix:English_collective_nouns
This list is missing the best one of all - a flamboyance of flamingos.
Should be a hootenanny
This deserves more praise.
Edit: Appropriate praise has now been awarded, well done people.
Yes! Finally someone else who finds them kind of scary!
Me too lol. I’m not scared of them in the way that I’d run away from them (unless the attacked me for some reason), but in addition to being cute and absolutely fascinating, there’s something about them that just unnerves me.
I remember reading a description on here a while back that they're like toasted marshmallows full of seething hatred, so unnerved is probably a safe feeling lol.
I found a dead owl this weekend and the feet on it were so big! The nails were silver and looked like metal and the grabby parts looked so powerful. Closest I'd ever seen an owl and not something I'd want to mess with. He looked like a real good boy.
My dad scared me with owls as a kid so I’m genuinely scared of them, lol
When owls started getting trendy it was a nightmare seeing trinkets of them everywhere. Even this post made me jump when I saw their eyes
I’m sure no one else is scared of them like that, but I can’t help it haha
I have to pick up an injured one (in bath towels) and carry it 4 blocks, and I’m not sure who was more scared: me or the birb.
I came home one night and thought I saw a bag caught on a low hanging tree branch. So I walked over to grab it. I live in the woods, so I’m not afraid of the dark…usually. When I got about 5 feet away from the branch, I realized what I saw wasn’t a bag, but in the low light I still couldn’t figure it out. Then the thing flew off the branch and dive bombed my head. A huge owl flying right at you is absolutely terrifying. Ever since that, they scare the hell out of me.
I hate to ask, but what type of owls are they?
Screech owls, not sure if Eastern or Western.
Fun fact: The nasghul screech is copIed from a screech owl. They also used to same owl, which played Hedwig in Harry Potter. No, sadly the last part isn't true, but Nasghul are just CGI-inflated owls.
I had to look up what nashgul was. I think you meant Nazgûl in LOTR?
Ironically, not barn owls.
Definitely Screech owls. Not sure if Western or Eastern though.
Gotta be screech owls, couldn't say if they're eastern or western.
For sure, screech owls. Couldn't tell you if eastern or western
Eastern screech.. wait no, Western? Not sure.
Might be Eastern screech owls, might be Western screech owls. Can't say for sure.
Screech owls, need to know location as could be eastern or western
Nice set of hooters you got there.
I beg your pardon?
The owls. They're beautiful.
One time, we successfully mated a Bulldog and a Shih-Tzu. Yeah...we called it a Bullshit.
“Why would Mary want to meet you at a bar at 10 in the morning?!”
“I just figured she was a raging alcoholic.” 🤷🏻♂️
Any unusual breeding?
Nah, mostly just doggystyle.
Petah, I'm holding hooters.
Peter, I'm holding melons.
*That's a nice set of hooters he got there!*
Samsonite! I was way off!
Why do owls always stare back at you like you’re invading their privacy whilst they’re in the bathroom
I need to get a barn.
And some mice
If you build it they will come.
This quickly escalated into a terrifying amount of owls
Yeah when I saw more than 4 I was like "what if they decide you're not cool suddenly?? Have you read Guardians of Ga'Hool? TALONS
😳 Do you 😳 Mind 🤨😳
Those are some superb owls.
I did not expect that sub to actually be about superb owls.
What else would it be about?
They all look pleasantly surprised to see you lol
Owl be damned.
*T H E C O U N C I L W I L L N O W D E C I D E Y O U R F A T E*
That was so many more owls than I was expecting
They're cute. A couple of them look like Eugene Levy.
Glad I’m not the only one thinking this.
why do owls blink so much?
Why do you blink so much?
Great, you made my hyperaware of my blinking
You are now manually blinking
Well whatever you DONT CONCENTRATE ON YOUR BREATHING EITHER!
It may just be that their eyes are big so it's more noticable.
We blink a ton but you almost never notice it.
Their eyes are so big if you look inside an owl's ear, you can see the back of their eyeball.
They got the hots for you
*hoots for you.. I'll see myself out.
I am naming them, from left to right: Tugger, Scamp, Atticus, Beaky, Gerb, Arran, and Mr. Woolcox.
That last one looking like Eugene Levy
OMG it’s a whole owl family! Lucky you!! They are so majestic and regal looking!
👀 👀👀👀 👀👀
Idk man, owls freak me the fuck out.
That being said, I am also high right now. So there’s that.
You are lucky and have the most rat free barn in 3 counties
Holy shit so cool to have an owl family, take good care of them so they can preserve the wild.
Bruh freaking screech owls are so funny. Super personable little dudes
Where'd you get those peepers?
sorry, but i find some of em a little creepy
You interrupted a session of parliament. They are *AGHAST*
