Here is one reason why the owl is one of the coolest birds of prey.
Hawks and eagles are the birds you typically see diving out of trees and scooping up fish. Well, it looks like this owl wanted to join in on the fun.

I have experienced owls making bold moves like this one many occasions. Often while fishing some canals in Florida I would have owls swoop down and try to steal my lure from the surface of the water. Luckily none of them ever succeeded.
It seems yelling and waving my paddles around was enough to ward them off.
