When birds go bump in the night
Now here’s something you don’t see everyday. An owl concussing outside your room.
According to eye witnesses, the owl flew over from another block to mine and crashed onto the wall directly outside my room. I was having dinner in my room and was oblivious to what happened until a friend told me the owl crash landed outside my room. It lied on the floor motionless and we were wondering if it was dead before it sprang into life and tried to escape. Unfortunately, it seemed to have injured its wings. Unable to fly, the bird was hopping around for a moment before it stopped and lied on the ground motionless again.
The bird has ouch written all over it’s face. Managed to snap a few shots before someone alerted campus personnel for help. Some dude came with gauntlets and just gently carried the bird away. Damn, these campus security personnel must be trained and prepared for the weirdest of shit to happen.
Anyway, if you haven’t noticed yet, the photos are slightly underexposed and noisy. That’s because I did not want to use the flash on the bird hence all shots were taken at ISO3200 (with the Canon 7D).
To end, here’s hoping for better days ahead for the poor owl. Maybe I’ll see you at the Jurong Bird Park!
