Owls

The owls are part of the family Strigiformes, which include about 200 birds of prey. Most are solitary, and nocturnal, except for some like the Burrowing owl. Owls hunt mostly small mammals, insects and other birds, though some specialize in hunting fish. Owls are found in all regions of the Earth except Antarctica, most of Greenland, and some remote islands. Living owls are divided into two families: the typical owls, (Strigidae) and the barn-owls, (Tytonidae).

Do owls eat grain?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Owls are not known to consume grain as they are carnivorous and feed on other animals. Small owls are assumed to consume grains, but the assumptions were wrong because they were observed and recorded to eat only bugs like grasshoppers and cockroaches.

What could a thing be in your eye that is like a piece of fuzz and moves with your eye movement?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

These are called "floaters".
It is possible that it is a small - very small - piece of detached retina or more commonly, structural debris from the vitreous humour. As we age, the vitreous humour, a jelly like sac that fills our eye cavities, can begin to detach and condense from the sides of the eye and the retina. The protein threads that hold this together can become lose and float through the eye as the vitreous humour becomes more liquid. Sometimes, as the vitreous detaches, it can rip or tear the retina along with it. This is an emergency!

If you notice you have floaters, you should see an eye doctor immediately to rule out retinal detachment. Fortunately, most people's floaters develop without harming the retina. In fact, most people notice floaters from time to time and they are mostly normal and benign. Once you've seen a doctor to make sure everything is okay, make sure to see them again if you notice your floaters worsening, or if they are accompanied by flashes of light.Floaters may be annoying and distracting. If that is the case, rest assured that you will learn to ignore them with time. However, sometimes floaters can be debillating. Some vitreous retina surgeons will perform a vitrectomy to remove floaters if they feel it is warranted. In vitrectomy surgery, the vitreous humour is sucked out of the eyeball and replaced with a saline solution. The operation is done on an outpatient basis, and most patients sight returns to normal within a matter of weeks. Although the complications of vitrectomy are treatable, they include cataract, retinal detachment and rarely, infection. Vitrectomy is an invasive surgery that should only be considered if you have floaters that significantly interfere with your vision and/or your quality of life.

Are pet owls legal in Canada?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

It is ILLEGAL to have a pet owl anywhere in the world unless you count zoo's. Maybe you should visit one and ask, then you will have your question answered better.

Actually it is legal to keep an owl in Canada, but only with the proper permits.

But it is extremely frowned upon to keep them in captivity as "Pets" as they are unable to show emotion through their facial expressions, and often terrified owls are treated as " tame and cute" by people who are inexperienced in keeping them.

They can be distinguished by the presence of a feather on the head. (a Chouette has no feather on its head).

Do owls have large wings to capture speed?

Owls have large wings to improve lift and help in gliding. Speed is a product of thrust or gravity (altitude change). Think evolution gave them large wings so they can glide efficiently to the prey without making noise by flapping their wings.
