Awesome Owls

I think owls are awesome animals. They have thick bodies and strong hooked beaks to eat little animals. They grab animals with their sharp claws or talons. Most of the owls species have feathers on their legs and toes. The owl has feathers covering the beak.

Owls have feathers sticking up on their head that look like ears, but these are not ears! Their ears are on the side of their head.  The feathers sticking up on their head are like satellites and the noise reflects off the feathers and into their ears.

Owls come in different sizes.  For example, the elf owl is only 6 inches long! The largest owl is the great gray owl which is up to 30 inches long and its wingspan is around 5 feet wide!!

Owls eat mice,rats,moles,squirrels and skunks.They also eat insects.They kill the animal with their  talons then they rip it to

shreds. Owls communicate with each other by making “whooo” noises. They tell each other if there is danger, also they ask each other for help in capturing animals that are too big for one owl to pick up!

    Dear Ryder,
    We learned a lot from your owl project like that owls have fur on their beaks and talons. We did projects too except we did not put them on the computer. Another interesting thing that we learned was that owls eat skunks. We thought that they were too big for the owls to eat. What is your favourite type of owl? Do you have any owls where you live? If you do, what kind are they?
    We have great horned owls here in Comox. We can not believe that an owl’s wingspan can be 5 feet long. That’s longer than our arm span!

    Dear Ryder
    I really like your post. The owls are so cute and their eyes are really big. I did not know that they can get that big! Good job!

    I have to agree with you that owls are awesome. They’re beautiful creatures! I never knew they could eat animals as big as a skunk.

    Dear Ryder,
    Wonderful post, I love animals, especially, ones that are cute and fluffy like owls. I can’t believe there are owls that are 6 inches tall! Great post!
