The owl, a master of the night sky, is extraordinarily adaptive when it comes to successfully pursuing and capturing its prey. In this list we present one of this fascinating bird’s most incredible adaptations – their camouflage.
These omnivorous birds count on stealth and surprise while hunting. Owls’ feathers are dually suited for these tasks – they allow the owl to fly silently and to remain concealed. Their feathers’ dull colors mimic the textures and colors of their environments almost perfectly, rendering them practically invisible to their prey.
