Cute Owl Hunts Invisible Prey (Video)

Is the owl hunting his shadow or just playing? We don’t know, but we do know that it’s really fun watching this little bird go into hunting mode.

Someone mentioned that he could be hunting insects. Otherwise I think he is a fledgeling (the stagte of his plumage fits that idea) and is going through a stage of practising play 'attacks'.

One of my rehabs was a baby barred owl who had been struck by an automobile. He exhibited this same behavior attacking an invisible spot. I liked to think it was normal learning behavior, but maybe he hadn't fully recovered from the head trauma??
Anyway, he was successfully rehabbed and released into the wild.
