tu whit-tu whoo

An owl is a curious bird Whose hooting you've probably heard. It's deemed to be wise Has perfect disguise And eyes of a size quite absurd. 02.05.21

Great limerick Wendy. I have always wondered how the owl got to be the symbol of wisdom. I assume it has something to do with mythology.

Thank you for the appreciation,Daniel. Yes I think it's associated with Athena the goddess of wisdom.

That's very kind of you, Jan. I only realised when reading up about them today that they don't have proper eyeballs, can't roll or turn their eyes and can only look straight ahead. thus the need to rotate their neck so extensively!
