This isn't something you'd expect to find in your kitchen sink.

News 12 Westchester is reporting that a barred owl flew through a kitchen window of a home in Bedford Tuesday. The owl landed in the sink along with shards of broken glass from the window it had just smashed through.

Fortunately, the owl was not hurt. Police were able to rescue the owl without incident by letting it fly out of the same window it had broken through.

Wikipedia describes the barred owl (or, northern barred owl or hoot owl) as a type of owl native to the eastern part U.S. and Canada. Most barred owls prefer heavily forested areas for their homes. 

Owls have a habit of showing up in unlikely places without warning. In January, an owl unexpectedly flew into a man's truck's open window in Avril Park, New York.
