Video of the day: Owl appears to hunt invisible prey

In an effort to bring a smile to your face, I will be scouring the web daily to find the cutest, most interesting animal videos available.

Today's video features a beautiful owl who appears to be hunting an object invisible to the viewers eyes. Perhaps the nocturnal bird's binocular vision is coming into play during the film, as it leaps and pounces at unknown prey.

Watch the adorable video below:
