    “To be honest, owls aren’t the brightest of birds, amazing as they are; parrots and crows are much smarter.  It’s all in the eyes: those

    magnificent piercing optics are what make all owls look like they are deep in concentrated scrutiny and steeped in long-lost knowledge.”

Owls indeed are enchanting creatures...

In a monastery a nun went to the garden to pray every night...
She would find an old tree, then sit underneath and say:
"Oh LORD please send me a man."
This went on for months on end, she would find her spot in the
garden and then lift her heartfelt prayer:
"Oh LORD please send me a man."
One night an owl came to sit in one of the branches of the old
tree. The nun didn't notice it when she sat down and offered
her prayer yet again:
"Oh LORD please send me a man."
The owl looked down in amazement then made a noise:
"Woo woo"
The nun was taken aback but she replied:
"Any man will do..."

Certainly do. Our house has loads owl based ornaments. One Christmas we set a task for guests to find how many we had on the ground floor.
I think the answer was thirty eight individual ones but we've found some more since     :lol:     what ? :owl: Owl Rowlet Emoji [ Pixel ] Northern Saw-whetOwl1 - F2U Blathers emoticon Owl Owl (death)

Owls have got to be most peoples favourite birds. 'Wol' was always my favourite character from A.A. Milne's Winnie the Pooh

Now that I think of it, it`s no wonder that owls are symbols of wisdom. Their eyes are so magically beautiful and intelligent. Owls are awesome.
