TURKEVE, HUNGARY— In a strange occurrence in Hungary that seems fit for a Harry Potter scene, owls are flocking to a small town in Hungary and experts have no idea why.

People in this small town are baffled after more than 60 owls have settled on trees in the town square. The invasion also has bird specialists and nature photographers flocking to the area to record the event. One ornithologist said it's exceptional that so many owls would be at the same place at the same time.

Experts around the world have also said the phenomenon is very unusual. One theory for this strange event is that the owls are finding food closer to the town than in the fields where they usually love and hunt.
