My total favourite
Vocabulary words when learning about owls
Duetting, Preening, Courtship, Tytoniade and Strigidae.
I think owls should be treated fairly. Why? Because people keep cutting down the forests which is their home. I also think they should be protected. Why? Because 96% of adult great horned owls that are dead were killed by humans. I choose this topic because I think owls are totally magnificent creatures. I think that because they are awesome at hunting and almost everything else.
