17  Great Grey Owlet Riding On Wild Turkey - YouTube  We got this video info from Blog — Birdchick
"Wow, This video is Amazing.  But if the owlet's mom comes, what would happen to the turkey? Hmmm...  What if it's the other way around?We don't think that a Great Grey Owl gives a baby turkey a ride. Maybe the owl could give a ride. Or the owl may eat the turkey baby."

Our Guess:  The baby owl sees its reflection in the cam lens, but it doesn't recognize as its own reflection. That's why the baby owl bites the cam.
