Whooooo's There? Baby Owl Shows Up At Woman's Doorstep (PHOTOS, VIDEO)

Whooo would have expected this guest?

Jan Spence opened her door to find a small owl sitting at her doorstep in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida last week.

"It was amazing," Spence told the New York Daily News. "It wouldn't move. It just sat there and looked at us. It was so cute and it was just a foot from the door."


Animal control told Spence to leave the owl alone and it would leave. But, the next day, the bird was still walking around the neighborhood, so she took it to Bird Emergency Aid & Kare Sanctuary (BEAKS).

"He's doing fine," Cynthia Mosling, Director and co-founder of BEAKS, told The Huffington Post. "I think this one was just wandering around and lost track of its parents."

Mosling said staff can't tell if the owl is a male or a female, because males and females have the same coloring, and owl genitalia is internal.

Whatever your gender, we wish you the best, little owl.
