If an owl’s eyes are very dark, dark brown or black they hunt in the night, if their eyes are lighter in color, they hunt in the early dawn hours.

Owls don’t have a sense of smell…which would explain why one of these species (sorry I cannot remember) actually prefers skunk for dinner!

Do you know why owls turn their heads like they do? 

Because they cannot move their eyes like we do!….and NO they cannot turn their heads 360 degrees!
