Heavenly hunters

The art of invisibility
WOOD OWL
Blends into the background
Unseen, camouflaged to perfection

Silent wings
BARN OWL
Wingbeats make no sound
Gliding effortlessly in the night sky

Night sight
TAWNY OWL
Forward-facing eyes
Focused watching weapons

Sounds of the night
EAGLE OWL
Highly developed hearing
Face like a satellite dish, turning 270°

Talons of death
SCOPS OWL
Hands that seize and hold secure
Deployed with pinpoint accuracy

Sit-and-wait
BARRED OWL
Skilfully perched and waiting intently
Swoops on unsuspecting prey

Aerial searching
SNOWY OWL
Hunting on the wing
Always looking out

Hawking
ELF OWL
Catching flying 6-legged prey
Keeps moving, never stops

Scavenging and piracy
WESTERN SCREECH OWL
Powerful, capable, but not above stealing
A last resort and lifeline for the young

Wise angler
PELS FISHING OWL
Skims the water snatching fish
Wades in for crab
