First, I thought I would share a few owl crafts that I love. Some I have made, and some I am hoping to make.
This is from
Lovely Crafty home! So adorable!
#1 is my favorite The Audubon Society says that a group of owls is called a parliament! C.S. Lewis coined that description of a meeting of owls in The Chronicles of Narnia.
#2 Many owl species have asymmetrical ears that are at different heights on their heads. This helps them to pinpoint sounds in many dimensions.
#3 The reason owls can turn their heads 270 degrees is because they have a blood-pooling system that collects blood that keeps their brain and eyes functioning when the neck movement cuts off their circulation.
#4 The tiniest owl in the world is the Elf Owl, which is only 5-6 inches tall and weighs about 1 .5 ounces. In Arizona, we also have a fairly tiny species of owl. It is the Cactus Ferruginous Pygmy Owl! It averages about 6.5 inches in height and weighs only 2 .5 oz.
*No luck so far, but Rachel Ray has this set below.
