In the deep darkness of night,
These nocturnal birds complete their silent flight.
With a flat face and a forward facing eyes,
They can rotate their head and neck upto 270 degrees.
Despite having binocular vision,
Their eyes are completely immobile in action.
Ear tufts are used for camouflage and also to show aggression,
These birds are shrewd and quick in predation.
With ears set asymmetrically on their skull,
These carnivorous birds have their coloration mostly dull.
Mainly live on eating insects and small rodents,
They constitute an important part of the ecosystem.
They create a wide variety of vocalization,
Truly, they are an unique wonder of God's creation!
