xD they have no neck! If their face was more shaped I'd love them too, but the face is a turn off for me.
I wish I had Spotted Owls where I live D; xD
xD -eep- I need my guardian of ga'hoole books, but the type of owl ezylryb (Lyze of kiel) is awesome. xD

I like those two owls too. Owls are really cool. You can learn about what they eat by disecting their owl pellets which are filled with bones and hair. I disected owl pellets last year and i found some rat skulls and mouse bones. Though some owl pellets are bigger then others. You can find some bird bones in a great horned owl pellet. :D

I like the plain old barn owl. They are so stubby and cute!

I like all owls very much, but if I had to pick a favorite, it would be the barn owl. Preferably a black barn owl, a type of genetic mutation like albinos; except the opposite. Unlike their colorless counterparts, their pigments are darker, or richer, or whatever you want to call it, and their immune system is much stronger, unlike weaker like albinos.

And yes, about two years ago I read book ten in the series, and it said something about checking the website for info on the movie. I checked and there was absolutely nothing. Maybe it will come out soon... ?

I blame Guardians of Ga'hoole for making me love them. Not really, I really like barn owls; they're very cool^^ Although I really like owls all together too.

I recently got the chance to see a Burrowing Owl. I've decided that I like them the most, because of the way they look at things. They're cute.

My favorite owl is the Tawny From Mouth, it camouflages with the tree it sits on and can be mistaken for a branch. They are really curious and don't make the normal hoot hoot of a normal owl instead a loud crackling noise that sounds like drumbeats. I helped rescue a baby owl and they are very cute and make good pets if it wasn't for the laws. They live in eucalyptus woodland and there a really common sight. I find them rather wonderful

Roaring of lions,
Howling of wolves,
Raging of the stormy sea,
are portions of eternity too great for the eye of man.

I agree, I've never seen one until you posted those pictures; they are wonderful indeed.

I like the snowy owls the best, though.
