How would you like one of these guys to land on your head? People walking through a particular field in the Netherlands get the chance to find out what its like. The friendly owl likes to spend a minute or so on his human perches before flying off.

In the article, the owl stays perched for about a minuite. I guess it is not digging in it's talons.

We got up close and personal to the Asian cousin of this critter and I'll guarantee you that you SERIOUSLY want to ENJOY whatever this bird thinks is appropriate while roosting on your head.
