I found it interesting that not all cultures connect owls with wisdom. For many African cultures, the owl is nothing but evil, while early European cultures viewed the owl as rather foolish!
It is noted that early Christian texts used the owl as a metaphor for Jesus, who appeared in the darkness of sin and showed humans the way to salvation.
Whatever people have concocted over the centuries, I think owls are gorgeous creatures, mysterious, regal, and powerful members of the bird species. I can't imagine a world without these big-eyed beauties!
A fun fact about owls; a group of owls is called a parliament.
