The owl and the policeman: Colorado cop catches adorable encounter with unfazed baby bird on body camera during stop on secluded mountain road
- The deputy was driving near the small town of Nederland when she and a colleague were stopped in their tracks by the young northern saw-whet owl, the Boulder County Sheriff's Office said.
- 'Hi, what's up?' says the deputy in the footage as she approaches the small bird on a woodland road. Unfazed, the young owl clicks back in response.
- 'After some curious head twisting (on both sides) it safely flew away,' the sheriff's office said in a statement on social media
- The sheriff's office said the cute encounter took place in the area of Rainbow Lakes Campground, a few miles northwest of Nederland, but that it was not revealing the exact location in order to protect the owl's nest.
