Not a lot of people know this.....but

Owls!

Did you know that they cannot move their eyes? Their eyes are fixed, so they have to move their whole head! In fact they can turn their heads 135 degrees in either direction!

A group of owls is called a "Parliament"

The owl is associated with the Greek goddess of wisdom: Athena, ( also known as Minerva in roman mythology)



Owl flight is silent.

An owl's face is flattened to help funnel sound to their ears.

Owls have two toes forward, and two toes backwards.


This is a SpoonOwl, made from a large teaspoon. it has toes.


The owl doorstops I make have no toes at all.


Owls have three eyelids, one for blinking, one for sleeping and one for keeping their eyes healthy and clean.

An owls ears are positioned asymmetrically, and are different sizes to help it tell where a sound is coming from.


There are around 216 species of owls, and as far as I know, none of them are green.


Wishing you all a Merry Christmas

Keep Well,

Sylvia
