Transcript of Owls

By Natasha Anderson :)
Owls are Natures nighttime predators,performing at night or during the hours of dusk the same role that hawks and their relatives perform during the day. They help control the population numbers of smaller animal species, and to cull weak and sickly individuals. They are short-necked, large-headed birds, able to turn their heads all the way around; they have extremely keen hearing and silent fliers.
Owls play tricks to escape danger. Some can '' disappear '' by blending in with their backgrounds. The long eared owl is especially good at blending in. It presses itself close to a tree trunk that matches it's brownish feathers and pushes it's feathery '' mustache '' forward '' to hide it's beak. It closes it's eyes sometimes, too. A long eared-owl is very hard to spot, even when you are near it. Owls also can make themselves look bigger and tougher then they really are.
