The memorable, descriptive names of the owls we’re all so fond of can sometimes be misleading. Whilst Little Owls are always little, the Barn owl does not always live in or own a barn. Similarly, the Snowy owl isn’t always in snowy territory and the Elf owl is rarely immortal or fluent in Quenya or Sindarin. Great Grey Owls are however, always great.
