Owl break

Call it a mid-afternoon curiosity attack, but when I saw a release from Mueller State Park about a nature program called "Owl-Rageous" that promised to answer the question: "Can an owl really turn its head all the way around?", I had to know before I could return to my work. After extensive research, I found out that the great horned owl and most other owls can rotate their heads 270 degrees, not enough for the "all the way around" award, but pretty impressive anyway.
If you want more owl facts, the Mueller program is at 11 a.m. Dec. 28.
By the way, I love watching owls - this tiny flammulated owl was a guest at the Pueblo Raptor Center earlier this fall. - Deb
