I love these birds. I love the "don't mess with me" look that they have without looking too intimidating. I love their coloring, from the snow owl to the great horned owl. Of all the birds out there, these are my favorites and I only wish I lived in a place were they could be seen much more often.
But I also love them as characters - like this guy.
I loved him in the commercials and thought it was absolutely stupid of a kid to bother such a wise creature with the stupid question of Tootsie Pops. Everyone knows that if you get to ask a talking owl to share their wisdom, it should be matters of greater importance. Tootsie pops - psh.
One of the other reasons I love fall, besides football, red leaves, crisp air is that it is the cool time of year to do things with owl - decorations, treats, etc. I just found this guy here.
Seriously, how much fun would this be to make?!?
I am presently on a mission to see all the great owls out there - projects, printables, treats, etc. I'll share here, but if you find some fantastic ones you want to share, please feel free to email me (tasha DOT seegmiller AT ironmail DOT org) or blog about it or whatever.
