Anatomical features

By their anatomical features they differ from daytime carnivores and are therefore distinguished as an independent unit. The features of the skeleton of owls include: the existence of processes of the main bone, a kind of triple junction of the lower jaw with the skull, very short phalanges of the third finger, mobility of the outer finger, which can bend back, finally, the existence of most notches in the back edge of the chest bones. Five rows of stiffer, scattered feathers form a radiant halo, the so-called face disk. Fly feathers of wide wings are wide, rounded at the ends and bent to the body; the outer vases of the first three feathers are often fringed or sawtooth-toothed, which allows them to fly almost silently; the third and fourth feathers are longer than the others. The tail feathers of the trimmed or rounded, usually short tail, are also bent to the bottom. Legs are usually feathered to the ground.

Their sharp long claws are strongly curved. The owl's beak, which bends from the very base, does not have any cuttings at the edges and ends with a short crochet by which owls can make a characteristic click, expressing strong excitement or irritation. A short stem flask is always covered with bristly feathers.

The eyes of owls are very large and look straight ahead, according to the position of the sockets on the front side of the facial parts of the skull, that is, the person cannot move his eyes like a man. The eyes of owls still stand still during their whole life. The world for owls appears black and white. Contrary to popular belief that owls see nothing during the day, owl eyes are not so sensitive to daylight; The owl, for example, sees it very well during the day, even at a great distance. The pupil of the owls narrows and expands not only when the light changes, but also with each inhalation and exhalation. Both the sight and hearing of the owls is extremely thin. It is almost 4 times thinner than that of a cat. The outer ear is relatively large and can be covered with a movable fold of skin that is feathered outside; radiant feathers, sitting around the ear holes, form the outer shell of the ear.

Owls can turn their heads 270 ° without harm to health due to a number of devices. First, owl carotid arteries in the region of the lower jaw bone have a balloon-like extension, creating a blood supply in case the blood supply “from the bottom” is reduced during an abrupt turn. 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, so that the blood vessels are not pinched in the corresponding holes in the cervical vertebrae when the head turns, these holes are about 10 times wider than the diameter of the arteries passing through them. Thirdly, the carotid arteries are connected to the vertebral by special anastomosis bridges in case the carotid arteries are strongly compressed when turning.

Most owls are dull colored; usually, black spots, stripes and streaks are scattered more or less densely on the main gray or rust background; but this coloring owls always in harmony with the surrounding background and completely hides them in the twilight.
