Why do I like owls so much?
- they are adorable
- and lovely
- and cuddly
"A wise old owl sat on an oak; The more he saw the less he spoke;
The less he spoke the more he heard; Why aren't we like that wise old bird?"
- nursery rhyme
Most birds of prey sport eyes on the sides of their heads,
but the stereoscopic nature of
the owl's forward-facing eyes permits the greater
sense of depth perception necessary for low-light hunting.
