Owls have been popping up everywhere lately: in books, on children’s clothes, bookbags, in films like Winnie the Pooh and the recent Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’hoole. There’s plenty to be fascinated about by these spectacular birds. God has designed and equipped them with unique features that make them stand out from other birds. For instance, did you know that owls can weigh as much as a ladies bowling ball but nevertheless are able to fly silently because they have hollow bones and a fringe of feathers that enables stealthy midair maneuvering? Couple this with eyes the size of saucers and supersonic hearing, and you’ve got one remarkable creature! To help you and your family study God’s handiwork and sort out fact from fiction, here’s an alphabetical listing of all 222 species of owls worldwide. The page includes descriptions, pictures, sounds, and habitat range maps.
