Synonymous with wisdom, owls are one of the most notorious nocturnal birds. Easily recognized by their large eyes and flat face, owls are the quietest bird of prey, making it easier for them to sneak up on their prey. Owls can turn their heads almost 270 degrees, allowing them to better see in all directions at night. With over 200 species worldwide, it's no surprise why people are fascinated by the wise owl.
