Owls, which have been called cats with wings, are the silent hunters of the night.
Their downy feathers and the front edge of their wings have a fringe which silences
their flight. The wings are substantially bigger than their actual body making their
slow smooth flight all the easier.
These birds also have a third eyelid which moves from side to side to clean their
vision. An owl's eyes are fixed in the socket, however to be able to see all around,
their incredibly flexible necks can rotate 270 degrees in any direction. An owl's vision and
hearing work harmoniously enabling them to eat their body weight on a daily basis.
Owls know when to move silently and when to be still, which makes them the keepers
of secrets. These solitary birds don't feel the need to proclaim their presence to
anyone until the timing is right. Owl comes to us when we need to open our eyes, and
study the situation at hand. If we watch and listen with our inner selves we can figure
out what is happening behind the scenes, and confront those who are trying to deceive
us at the appropriate time.
