There's an owl on my bike!

Definitely the best excuse I've ever had for being late to work.

 

BIKE OWL UPDATE: at the advice of some owl / bird rescue folks we left him alone, and as soon as it started getting dark out he called (screeched, really) for his momma owl to come take care of him. For a while we had TWO owls on my bike! She kept him well fed, and this morning I spotted him hopping away towards a tree, so I think all's well in his world.

 

BIKE OWL UPDATE #2:

 

As seen in New York Magazine's Approval Matrix!! Also seen in The Daily, or so I've heard, which I don't think I have a way to link to!

 

And also picked up by Jalopnik, Fark, Austinist, and by a bunch of nice folks on Tumblr. Oh, and as one of Flickr's Interesting photos.

 

Thanks for all the owl love, everyone!
