The Owls

Owls. They’re adorable, precious, and my favorite of the bird species after Kiskadees. I also love the birds that I’ll be featuring for the letter ‘P’. πŸ’™ Owls tend to get a bad rep for the so-call symbolism they represent in our culture, but they’re so much more than that.

🐦 Owls can rotate their necks 270 degrees. A blood-pooling system collects blood to power their brains. They have a field of vision of about 110 degrees (about 70 degrees of it being binocular vision enabled). 

🐦 There are around 200 different owl species. Most owls have large eyes and a flat face.

🐦 Owls are found just about everywhere in the world, the one exception is Antarctica. They’re very versatile birds when it comes to their habitat and highly adaptable.Β 

🐦 Owls have exceptional vision that make it very easy to find prey, and they’re patient hunters.

🐦 For the most part, owls are very isolated creatures… until mating time comes around!

A few years ago, my mom rescued a distressed owlet that was quite tangled in fishing line that it couldn’t fly off on its own. After she untangled it, we watch it flew off to its freedom, and this video by WatchJojo Animals reminds me of that time:

  1. “Owls tend to get a bad rep for the so-call symbolism they represent in our culture, but they’re so much more than that.” Yeah I was one of them that had discriminated this lovely creature. I still don’t really like them that much but I admire their lovely eyes, wings and colors. Beautiful images indeed and what a heart-warming video too ❀ πŸ™‚ God bless!

  2. Owls are omens of death in my culture (I’m PNW Native American), but I still think they’re beautiful, just a tad creepy culturally. One time we hit an owl with our car and we thought it died so we took it and we were going to bury it to honor it, but it was just knocked out and regained consciousness in our car! It was crazy, but he got out and he was fine.
