This is the eighth 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: A group of owls is called a parliament, wisdom, or study.

Owl folklore: In Ancient Greece, owls were thought to accompany Greek soldiers to war, and to see one soaring over the army prior to battle was a sign of victory.

Owl link: Check out xeno-canto.org. Fun website devoted to sharing bird sounds from around the world. There are lots of owl calls for your listening pleasure and here’s a video of a Tawny Owl hooting.

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