Owls are intriguing birds which fascinate people since the dark age. They are viewed as signals of bad luck or death, and associated with sorcery and other evils. This belief is widespread even today. They are of the order Strigiformes, which include about 200 species of mostly solitary and nocturnal birds of prey typified by an upright stance, a large, broad head, binocular vision and binaural hearing, with feathers adapted for silent flight. This project is mainly based in pictures of Burrowing owls (Athene cunicularia), the species I photograph most, simply because they are very common in my region.
