Because owls are awe inspiring

There’s a definitely proclivity toward eagles, falcons, and hawks as symbols of strength, power, or what-have-you. They’ve been used as symbolic “look how cool we are” birds by the U.S., Harley-Davidson, Germany, etc. We describe militarily aggressive attitudes as being hawkish. They’re predators, they’re fast, and they’re pretty. They’re admirable birds. I get it, but the most fascinating raptor is actually the owl.

Owls are awesome. Owls have heads on a swivel. They are birds of prey. The collective noun for a group of owls is a parliament. They’re symbols of wisdom (the reason I chose an owl as the icon for this blog) and some species and have been discovered to practice primitive tool usage. And they’re stealthy, able to fly almost completely silently.

Owls are the bird of prey for thinkers.
