This baby owl sleeping face down is such a mood. This has been me all quarantine.
This picture of a baby owl sleeping face down surfaced on the internet, and it is by far the most relatable thing out there.
The fact that they sleep like this is blowing minds out there.
This is the funniest goddamn thing I've ever seen. https://t.co/C9KogulXkr— Sarah McAnulty, Ph.D (@SarahMackAttack) June 3, 2019
Many people doubted the credibility of this picture. However, it turns out the picture is as authentic as it can be.
I finally had the chance to fact-check this and I think it’s true?— Mika McKinnon (@mikamckinnon) June 3, 2019
Which is all kinds of amazing because TIL human toddlers & teenage owls are both champions of the Awkward Nap. https://t.co/uZbcuMDeyL
I've just discovered that baby owls sleep face down like THIS because their heads are too heavy. Also, I don't think I've seen owl legs before.... pic.twitter.com/dfKii2JtS8— Mark Rees (@reviewwales) June 21, 2020
They are almost like napping teenagers laying there tuckered out.
Some experts also pitched in saying that the picture is authentic. Baby owls, indeed, do sleep like this.
One woman shared on Twitter,
“I went to a bird display thing once and saw an owl doing that in the sun on a hot day. I panicked and cried to the man I thought one of his birds had died in the heat... he had to wake the poor thing up to convince me it was okay.”
The National Audubon Society confirmed it as well with a report from a birder who observed a young owl sleeping and noted another important detail:
Turns out, they hand teenager-like tantrums as well.
Sleepy, and not even remotely graceful about it, with the possibility of an outburst when woken. You’d think the food would help that waking nudge go over a little better though, wouldn’t you?
