Owls are beautiful and are very popular among the bird watching community.
Here we present you a series of hilariously awkward photos of owls captured in just the right moment, along with a bunch of interesting facts. Enjoy!
Many species of owl have asymmetrical ears (opposite of symmetrical), this means their ears can pinpoint the location of sounds in multiple directions.
Owls don’t have traditional eyeballs, instead, they have tube-shaped eyes that cannot move, giving them binocular type vision which helps them focus on their prey. It also boosts their depth perception.
Their necks can rotate an impressive 270 degrees, which makes up for the lack of general eye movement.
A group on owls is called a parliament, a term which originates from a description from the book, The Chronicles of Narnia.
The Northern saw-whet owl can fly lengthy distances over water, for example, one was found 70 miles from the shore in NY.
