Owl Behavior

Owls are carnivores. They have a keen sense of sight and an acute sense of hearing. These birds are nocturnal and hunt at night. They sleep during the day. Owls eat rodents, insects, birds and frogs. They have two methods of hunting: perch and pounce (the owl waits on a tree branch until it spots the prey) and quartering (the owl flies over the ground looking for its prey).
