This is the ninth 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 barn owl can eat up to 1,000 mice per year. No wonder farmers try to attract barn owls to help control rodents!

Owl folklore: Because of their association with the goddess Athena, owls are sometimes viewed as guardians with a magical inner light that enabled them to see at night.

Owl link: The Barn Owl Conservatory Network focuses on British Barn Owls. Still, there is a lot of information here that owl fans will find interesting  and a video with lots of Barn Owl Facts.

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