Most kids think owls are awesome – and they are right! Truly, is there any bird as cool as the owl? These birds are so spooky and mysterious, the way they fly silently around hunting in the dark. Then they snatch their prey up in those giant talons. Not only that, they can turn their heads almost completely around!
