Alright, Happy Wednesday!! How are ya? Now, I’m going to let y’all in on a little secret…I’m obsessed with owls (well, decor-wise)! Honestly, I don’t know what this obsession is all about! It has something to do with their look. I guess their strength, poise, and posture intrigues me.

Okay, check out these cool facts about owls:

1.} Not all owls hoot, and owls can make a wide range of other sounds, such as screeches, whistles, barks and hisses. During the nesting season, owl calls can often be heard up to a mile away.

2.} A group of owls is called a parliament, wisdom or study. Baby owls are called owlets.

3.} Owls have been found in the fossil record up to 58 million years ago. The largest recorded owl fossil, Orinmegalonyx oteroi, stood about three feet tall.

4.} The biggest modern threats to owls are habitat loss, pesticides that poison the birds and their food supplies and human persecution because of negative superstitions.

5.} There are many interesting facts about owls but this fact is really weird and strange. Most of the owl species are cannibals. Bigger owls feed on smaller owls. Mostly they hunt down the owls of other smaller species. Smaller Barred Owls are usually hunted by Great Horned Owls. The Barred owls in turn feed on other smaller owl species. Barred owls are the major cause in the decline of Screech Owl populations. Also there are some avian species which also hunt them down.

{Note: Totally did NOT know this before today!! I’m sad now…those poor little owls…watch out precious owlets!}

    We have an owl in the woods behind my house. I think that it helps keep down the chipmunk population. The barking dead? I love it. My dog always tears off his costume. We had a cool batman outfit for him one year and it lasted about 10 minutes.

      Hahahaha!!! So funny that your dog resists costumes!! Hilarious! I’m actually so surprised that Prince doesn’t eat his costume while in it. To my surprise, he’s pretty cool about it! He actually gets all hyper! So funny to watch! And yep, The barking dead? Gotta love that name, right? Hehe!! Have a wonderful Thursday! XOXO!

    I love owls! I hand fed a wild Boreal owl one year when we had super deep snow. They hunt mice and the poor little guy couldn’t catch any mice due to the snow pack. He (maybe she) kept hanging around the house and I sort of figured it was hungry and I just decided to go feed it some raw meat. It ate right from my hand so gentle. I fed it about 4 times that day and then it flew away. Love the Halloween costume idea too!

    Love the owl facts – I feel smarter already! I love days when I learn new things 🙂

    Your Halloween idea sounds so fun – can’t wait to see pics! We use to dress up for Halloween but have not done so in a few years. Maybe this year we will pull something out.

    I’m loving Nuun tablets lately – they make my water yummy and fizzy and easier to drink when I’m not in a water mood. I can use 1/2 tablet on a big cup of water just to add a little flavor.

    Have a great weekend!
