Boulder County Sheriff's Deputies meet their feathery match

A video of an owl interacting with a deputy is going viral Monday. 

Some Boulder County deputies were driving near a campground on Thursday when they were stopped in their tracks by a young Northern Saw Whet Owl. 

Officials say after some curious head twisting (on both sides) it safely flew away. 

On the description of the now viral video they used the hashtag #‎DeputiesLoveBabyOwls.
