There are two families in the detachment: owls, or real owls, and the owls, but in the taxonomy of Sibley-Alquist, all families of the order of the goat-shaped (Caprimulgiformes) are placed in the detachment.

"Owls are not who they seem" . These creatures from the world of birds, with a deep and piercing look, and unique behavior, knowingly from time immemorial populate fairy tales and legends.

Anatomical features

According to their anatomical features, they differ from day-to-day predatory ones and, therefore, stand out as an independent detachment. The peculiarities of the skeleton of owls are: the existence of the appendages of the base bone, the peculiar triple junction of the lower jaw with the skull, the very short phalanges of the third finger, the mobility of the outer finger, which can be bent back, and finally the existence in the majority of species (except for the barn owls) bones. Five rows of more rigid, judicious feathers form a radiant corolla, the so-called facial disc. The feathers of wide wings are wide, rounded at the ends and bent to the body; the outer webs of the first three feathers are often fringed or saw-tooth serrated, which allows the fly to be virtually silent; the third and fourth pen are longer than the others. The tail feathers of a circumcised or rounded, usually short tail, are also bent to the bottom. Legs are usually feathered to the ground.

Sharp long claws are strongly bent. The owl's beak, bending from the very base, does not have any scraps at the edges and ends with a short crochet with which the owls can produce a characteristic click, expressing strong excitement or irritation. A short wax is always covered with bristly feathers.

The eyes of the owls are very large and look straight ahead, according to the position of the eye sockets on the front side of the facial parts of the skull, that is, to move their eyes like a man, an owl can not. The eyes of the owls stand still for the rest of their lives. The world for owls is represented in black and white. Contrary to the popular belief that owls do not see anything during the day, the eyes of owls are not as sensitive to daylight; owl, for example, perfectly sees in the day, even at a great distance. The pupil of owls strongly narrows and expands not only with changing lighting, but also with each inhalation and exhalation. Both sight and hearing are extremely thin. It is almost 4 times thinner than a cat's. The outer ear is comparatively large and can be covered with a movable crease of the skin, feathered outside; Radiant feathers sitting around the ear holes form an outer shell of the ear.

Owls can turn their heads 270 ° without harm to health due to a number of devices. First, the carotid artery of the owls in the region of the lower jawbone have balloon-shaped enlargement, which creates a blood supply in case the blood supply "from below" is reduced when the blood turns sharply. Because of this feature, the network of small blood vessels extending from the main arteries is increased, which facilitates the delivery of blood to the brain. Secondly, to ensure that blood vessels are not squeezed into the corresponding holes in the cervical vertebrae when the head rotates, these holes are about 10 times wider than the diameter of the arteries passing through them. Thirdly, carotid arteries are connected to vertebral arteries by special anastomoses in case the carotid arteries are strongly compressed during the turn.

Most of the owls are dull; usually in the main gray or rusty background more or less densely scattered black spots, stripes and pieskin; but this color of owls is always in harmony with the surrounding background and completely hides them in the twilight.
