MY FAVOURITE ANIMAL

THE OWL

Description

Owls are birds from the order Strigiformes, which includes about 200 species of mostly solitary and nocturnal birds of prey typified by an upright stance, a large, broad head, binocular vision, binaural hearing, sharp talons and feathers adapted for silent flight. Exceptions include the diurnal northern hawk-owl and the gregarious burrowing owl.


Owls hunt mostly small mammals, insects, and other birds although a few species specialize in hunting fish. They are found in all regions of the Earth except Antarctica and some remote islands.

My experience with them

The day that I saw the first one was this summer in Scotland, when I was on a trip in Edinburgh. It was amazing because I had never seen those big yellow eyes that close before.
