There are 205 existent species of owls in the world. More than 6 species are extinct, and several more are on the endangered list.

Owls All Over
The World
Fun Facts:
Owls are called "strigiformes" scientifically
Owls cough up owl pellets 24 hours after eating prey
The Egyptian hieroglyph for "M" is an owl
Owls can hear a mouse step on a twig 75 feet away
Owls of the Weasley Family
The Weasley family has three owls throughout the series: Errol, the family owl; Hermes, Percy's owl; and Pigwidgeon, or "Pig," Ron's owl, who is a scops owl.
Appearance
Owls’ beaks are short, but they are very sharp. So are their talons, which many people call claws. On an owl they are called talons.
Types of owls
There are two main types of owls. One category is barn owls. They have heart-shaped faces, and no ear tufts. Then there are true owls. They have disc-shaped faces and big ear tufts.
THE END
THANKS FOR
WATCHING!
I LOVE PREZI!!!
This is the hieroglyph for "M"
This is a Great Grey Owl

*SPOILER ALERT*
* SPOILER ALERT*
This is a Scops Owl. They are roughly the size of a tennis ball.
It is easy to tell because males are completely white,
and females have dark markings.
*LOOK AWAY IF YOU HAVE NOT READ HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS AND ARE EVER PLANNING TO READ IT*
THANK YOU
P.S. If you've seen the movie,
it's all safe.
Also from Harry Potter:
Something Sad
When Harry Potter books and movies first started coming out, many people bought owls as pets. When they stopped coming out, most owl owners released their owls into the wild. Many of those owls died because they were too domesticated.

This Great Horned Owl is a perfect example of a true owl.
Like the eyes of the owl, the ears are spectacular. An owl can hear a mouse step on a twig 75 feet away! That's pretty amazing.

Eyes
The eyes of an owl are very meticulous. In other words, they are suber observant, or sharp. The "eyeballs" of
an owl are not eyeballs. They are actually more the shape of a tube going back
into the owl's head.
This Great Horned Owl is a great example of a true owl.

These are the eyes of an owl. The eyes together are 1-5% of the total weight of the owl's body!
