In a small town called Noordeinde, which is located in the northwestern province of South Holland, Netherlands, there is an overly friendly owl. This European eagle owl likes to roost on people's heads. No kidding, it apparently selects a non-suspecting walker in the town and chooses to take a rest there.
The six-pound creature sits atop the head of a walker for around one minute before it again flies off in search of yet another roost. Photographer Menno Shaefer came to the area because he had heard the stories of this crazy bird. He was able to grab some great pictures and shared that "it was a very funny thing to watch, however I’m just as confused as anyone as to why it does this.”
Residents have speculated that the owl may have escaped from an aviary in Oosterwolde, and are also quite excited about the publicity that their small town is receiving.
