Can you watch this adorable baby owl take a big yawn without doing the same? We challenge you!
The tiny baby owl was caught on a camera while doing a huge infectious yawn. Gerald Robinson has been returning to photograph a family of owls for around 3 years at a church in Rotherham. Finally he is lucky enough to film one of this year’s young on Wednesday.
This hilarious video shows the tiny owl sitting on a gravestone and turning its head to look at the camera to give a yawn. The little owl has gathered many hearts of social media after the video clip was shared by BBC. This footage has become viral with more than 400,000 views.
Not only this much, the yawn is prompting hundreds of yawns from anyone who sees the video. Gerald says, “It really does look human the way it does it – it looks like it had had a hard night out. It looks more like a bloke who’s been out on the town until 3am rather than a baby owl who has been relaxing in the sun all day. It was very funny to watch its facial expression and to see such a small creature do such a big yawn. I had only been filming it on and off for around 10 or 15 minutes so I was very lucky to catch it. The video has gone crazy online. The little thing seems to have captured people’s imagination. It’s the cute factor I think – it is particularly cute”.
