Owl are a group of “Birds of Prey” i.e. a bird who uses its claw to hunts for food. They are solitary and nocturnal (sleeps during day and active at night). They usually eat small mammals, insects and birds. The owls are divided into two families typical owls and barn owls. Typical owls are known as Strigidae and barn owls as Tytonidae. There is a circle of feathers around eyes called a facial disc. They are far-sighted and are unable to clearly see anything within a few inches of their eyes. Their far vision, particularly in low light, is incredibly good, and they can turn their head 135 degrees in either direction; they can thus look behind their own shoulders. Owl eggs are white and almost spherical, and range in number from a few to a dozen, depending on species.
