David Mizejewski in the USA writes about this:
5 December 2014
This great horned owl was attacked by a pair of peregrine falcons. Though much larger than the falcons, the owl knew better than to fight back against the smaller birds, which kill other birds by dive-bombing into them at speeds of over 200 mph.
Instead, it plunged in to waters of Lake Michigan to escape. Owls and other large birds don’t enter the water willingly, but their light bodies float and they can use their wings to do a breaststroke and swim, as this owl shows.
Fortunately for the owl, it survived the attack and flew away after it reached the shore.
Something else again than the young goshawk which I saw swimming.
