After all, hoo doesn't love these birds? Be a wise old owl and have a free-for-owl with our favourite feathered funny jokes and puns about owls to tickle you.

Owls are fascinating creatures. There are around 200 different species but only five in Britain - the British barn owl, the tawny owl, the short-eared owl, the long-eared owl and the little owl.

Did you know that owls can turn their head by up to 270 degrees - almost as much as teachers! However, they can't see things up close, despite those huge eyes. And if one flies over you, you'll probably not hear it - they fly quietly, so they can catch their prey (small mammals, birds and insects) unaware.
