MY CATS AND OWLS

From the first time I saw an owl in a zoo I don't remember where, I fell in love with these birds. They looked in my opinion,  exactly as my cat Rosie, they have the same huge eyes.

I also found that owls have the same expression as a human and I could have observed these animals for hours ! I also was impressed that owls don't need eyes in the back of their heads to see what's behind them — they can just swivel their heads all the way around. In fact, many owl species, can rotate their heads 270 degrees in each direction, which means they can look to the left by rotating all the way to the right, or vice versa ! That made me jealous, I wished I could do that too, but I could try as long as possible it never worked. It would have been so practical to cross a main street, or even more interesting for neighbor watch, I could be a private detective, or when I was in school easily see what others wrote ! What a dream !

When I visited a Farmer's fest in the UK there were many owls. I didn't want to go elsewhere, I just wanted to observe these amazing animals.

I love owls too. I know something terrible has happened to many of our owls in Australia but I am not going to look.

I love owls, too. Hubby has a collection of ceramic owls that are beautiful.

The best is hearing them in the trees outside our house at night.

I hear that owls are very intelligent birds. I agree, it would make life easier if we could twist our heads 270 degrees!

There are no owls in the built up area where I live and I have only seen them in the wild twice. They are wonderful looking creatures.

I love owls too. I've heard more of them than I've seen them, as they tend to be night animals, after all.

I like the photo collages. Definitly unusual looking birds.
