Owl Blossom Party Supplies – The Background
Owl Blossom Party Supplies are based on owl, a symbol of wisdom. Owls are a group of birds known for their silent flight, nocturnal habits (sleeping during day and active at night) and distinct calls. They are “Birds of Prey”; birds that use their claw to hunts for food.
Owls are often depicted in various ways in popular culture. They are one of the most celebrated of Halloween creatures, along with bats and spiders. In Winnie the Pooh, Harry Potter, Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH and various other children’s stories, Owls have appeared as wise and noble characters.
There are around 205 species of owls, sorted into two basic groups, barn owls and true owls. Barn owls (also known as Tytonidae) are medium-sized birds having a wingspan of about 3½ feet. They have a heart-shaped face, powerful talons and long legs. There are 16 species of barn owls, including Australasian grass owl, the greater sooty owl, ashy-faced owl, Sulawesi owl and barn owl.
True owls (also known as Strigidae) are more diverse, with nearly 190 species. True owls have a round facial disc, a large head and a short tail. Their color is muted and their pattern is mottled which helps to conceal them from both predators and prey. Some of the true owls are horned owls, screech owls and saw-whet owls. These vary in size from the tiny elf owl to the bulky Eurasian eagle owl.
Owls are predators and feed on a wide variety of prey. They are carnivorous i.e. meat-eaters. Small mammals such as mice, squirrels, rabbits and voles are their main food source. They also feed on birds, insects and reptiles. Owls do not have teeth, so they can’t chew their prey. They swallow small prey whole and tear larger prey into small pieces before swallowing.
Most owls are nocturnal and hunt at night. Being nocturnal helps them in avoiding competition with daytime hunters such as hawks and eagles. However, some species like burrowing owls and short-eared owls feed during the day and pygmy owls feed at dusk or dawn.
Owls have three sets of eyelids but cannot move their eyeballs within their sockets as their eyes are fixed in their sockets. They have to turn their entire head to see in a different direction. But owls have well-developed binocular vision due to their forward-facing eyes and their far vision, particularly in low light, is incredibly good. But they are far-sighted only. They are unable to see anything clearly within a few inches of their eyes.
An owl’s coat is made of thousands of feathers. Some species have special flight feathers adapted for silent flight as the special adaptations enable them to minimize the sound made when flapping their wings. The soft fringes help to reduce turbulence and stiff fringes reduce noise. Their flight sound is further reduced by the downy feathers that cover the surfaces of the wing. The feathers also keep them warm but they often get owls into trouble because they are not very waterproof.
An owl can open and close its ears. Owls’ ears are located behind the eyes and are concealed by feathers. Owls have an acute sense of hearing and can hear a mouse 60 feet away.
Owls have strong feet like raptors. Two of the toes face forward while two face backward. Due to this arrangement the owls are able to capture and grasp prey with greater ease.
Owls use various sounds or vocalizations to communicate, the most familiar being hoot. However, hoot is usually a territorial declaration. Also, not all species can hoot. Owls can make screeches, hisses, screams and many other sounds. The sounds made by owls are loud and low-pitched and can travel well through the night air.
All owls lat white eggs and are almost spherical in shape. Depending on species, they may range from a few to a dozen in number. A female owl lays eggs in intervals of 1-3 days and hence, all the eggs of an owl do not hatch at the same time.
An owl can look behind its back by swinging its head around as they can turn their head 135 degrees in either direction.
Owl build their nests in trees, underground burrows, or in barns and caves. Owls are typically solitary birds. However, a group of owls is called a parliament.
Both male and female owls have almost the same appearance but female owls are larger and heavier than the males.
Except Antarctica, owls live on every continent.
