What is a female owl called in french?

une chouette

Precision


or 'un hibou'

Chouette and Hibou are two distinct species of birds of prey.
They can be distinguished by the presence of a feather on the head. (a Chouette has no feather on its head).
So , the answer Franc91 gave is not "ornithologycly" (I like inventing words) correct.

What does seeing or hearing an owl mean?

Since most owls are nocturnal (meaning they come out at night and sleep during the day), seeing one usually means you have stayed up too late or the owl is up too early. It is still an exciting experience, especially to see one of those huge snowy owls, which are not nocturnal.

On the other hand, hearing an owl and its haunting hoo-hoo at dusk is not so unusual in hunting camps and during wilderness camping, but makes you wish all the more to see it...which you probably will not.

As for preternatural or supernatural meaning to seeing an owl, it probably means you have watched too many Harry Potter movies, but could also be connected to a loved one, living or deceased. Only you can determine that.

Significance of a brown owl?

Owl is one of the creatures of nature that has had a different significance to very nearly every group of man to come into contact with it.

There are enough beliefs about hearing and/or seeing owls to fill a large book. What I guess I'm saying here is that Owl, most likely has a personal significance to you, good, bad or indifferent, and that would be the way you should interpret it.
