I love owls! I think they are some of the most beautiful birds! In addition to the actual birds, I love some of the owl art I have found around the web. I will be sharing those site with you here on my site.

Per Wikipedia (all links in this quote from Wikipedia will take you to a page at Wikipedia) –

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.

Owls are divided into two families: the true owls or typical owls, Strigidae; and the barn-owls, Tytonidae.
