Fire crews continue to battle several fires across Central Texas Tuesday. Winds are expected to be lighter today, but low humidity could help flames spread quickly, forecasters say. There is no chance of rain.
Flickr user Adam Norwood found this owlet had taken over his bicycle! “Definitely the best excuse I’ve ever had for being late to work,” he writes.
After snapping a few pictures, Norwood left the scared little bird alone. “Sure enough,” he writes, “as soon as it started getting dark out he called (screeched, really) for his momma owl to come take care of him.” (via Cute Overload)
