Throughout history the owl (Family: Strigidae) has been featured in mythology, folklore and euphemisms. Who has not heard at one time or another someone being referred to as a “wise old owl” or called “a night owl”? In ancient Greece owls were often depicted as symbols of good fortune. Perhaps the wise old owl came from its association with the Little Owl, who was the messenger of Athena, the goddess of wisdom. Owls are one of the few birds that have been found in prehistoric cave paintings with fossils dating back 60 million years. Amazingly, these fossils show that the bird has changed little in that time.
