Haiku Poem: Wise Night Owl

The wise night owl hoots.

Nestled in the carved out tree.

Eyes are all you see.

Did you know the owls’ eyes are binocular and immobile? This means they can focus both eyes on a distant object with exquisite depth perception.

And although their eyes are fixed, they make up for this restriction. For instance, they are able to rotate their necks 270 degrees in either direction. They are truly amazing creatures.
