Did you know?
An owl's eye colour can offer clues to its hunting habits! Generally, owls with yellow eyes are most active during the day, while those with orange eyes tend to be crepuscular hunters, meaning they're most active at dawn and dusk. Owls with dark eyes are typically nocturnal, hunting primarily at night.
