Hikers come across rare sight of owl swimming in a canyon


When ridding through the nature it’s always fascinating. You can admire its beauties in all of their splendor. Still, sometimes you might spot some unusual, yet captivating events. It’s what happened in this particularly situation.

Derrick Zuk and a group of his friends were hiking through a canyon in Lake Powel, somewhere in Arizona and Utah, when they came across a jaw-dropping sight. They managed to capture the breathtaking moment on camera, and now it has gone viral all over the internet.

The rare footage shows an owl swimming. National Geographic reports that it is probably a great horned owl and that it still appears to have some of its nestling feathers. It is highly likely that it had an accident and fell from its nest right into the water. Owls are unable to take flight from water, but they can swim to land before taking off again. Derrick went back to the same spot some hours later along with his group, but the owl was nowhere to be seen. He had probably taken flight already.

It’s quite incredible what surprises Mother Nature can offer us sometimes.
