80 years ago, the best headline ever about owls was written

Illustration for article titled 80 years ago, the best headline ever about owls was written

It's been a big week for owls, what with the last Harry Potter film hitting theaters and an unfortunate British owl hitting a bedroom window. So it's rather fortuitous that this fantastic article from a 1930 issue of Modern Mechanics was brought to my attention.

This is my second favorite orthinological headline I've ever read. And in case you were wondering, here's the first.
