Owls: funny, sad, cute and just plain cool (38 PHOTOS)

We’re all into cats and dogs, mostly. Often we overlook owls, who are simply amazing!

Owls are birds known for their distinct calls, nocturnal habits and silent flight. Owls are familiar to many people because they are often depicted in various ways in popular culture.

They rank on par with bats and spiders as the most celebrated of Halloween creatures. Owls also appear as wise and noble characters in many children’s stories.

There are about 205 species of owls, and these species are sorted into two basic groups, the barn owls and the true owls.

Make no mistake though – owls are predators. They feed on a wide variety of prey. Their main food source consists of small mammals such as mice, squirrels, voles and rabbits. They also supplement their diet by feeding on birds, insects and reptiles. Owls cannot chew their prey since, like all birds, they do not have teeth. Instead, they swallow small prey whole.

Most owls are nocturnal – they hunt at night and in doing so avoid competition with daytime avian hunters such as hawks and eagles.
