COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho - A Coeur d'Alene couple says an owl flew into their 10th story apartment, opened up their bird cage, and killed one of their canaries. 

The owner told KHQ that he woke up on Sunday and found bird droppings and feathers all over her apartment. He said he also saw a 6-to-8 inch owl behind a chest of drawers. Once spotted, that owl flew out the window, perched on the balcony for a while and then flew away. 

One of the canaries inside the cage was dead and the other was pretty spooked. 

A wildlife specialist said it is strange that an owl would be flying so high without man tall trees, and even more surprising that it would fly into an apartment. 

The owners of the surviving canary said they will use twist ties to secure the door on the cage from now on.

    LAREDO, Texas (AP) - As vehicles line up at the Border Patrol’s checkpoint a half-hour drive’s north of the U.S.-Mexico border, its agents have around 10 seconds to check each driver and decide which few they will stop for additional inspection. It’s a situation challenged constantly by smugglers, sometimes with deadly consequences.
