A Westchester homeowner was not having a hoot this week when an owl came crashing through her kitchen window, sending glass flying.

Police said that officers responded to a Pines Bridge Road home in Bedford, when they received a call that a barred owl had made a crash landing in a kitchen sink.

The responding officers were able to safely remove the owl from the glass-filled sink and released it back into the wild through the same window he crashed through without further incident.

Wildlife officials described the barred owl as “a moderately-sized owl with dominant light gray feathers with brown horizontal stripes on the neck and chest and vertical stripes on the belly. Brown stripes radiate from the eyes encircling the facial disc. The eyes are dark brown. It has no ear tufts.” 

Some of the largest can reach four feet in length.
