This is the third blog in a series of owl-focused posts to promote Owl Light, my new YA-friendly collection of stories featuring owls. Each post features a mix of owl art, facts, folklore, quotes, and links to owlish sites. If you’re a fan of owls, or know someone whooo is, follow my blog, buy my book, and be kind to these beautiful birds.

Owl fact: The tufts of feathers that look like ears atop an owl’s head are nothing but feathers!

Owl folklore: William Shakespeare wrote of the owl as a premonition of death in Julius Caesar: “…yesterday, the bird of night did sit Even at noonday, upon the market place, Hooting and shrieking…”

And, of course, here’s a buy link for Owl Light.
Or buy it from The Owl Pages and help out owls.
