This well-known group of birds scarcely needs a description. They are small to large birds with large round heads, loose, fluffy plumage, and disk-like faces. Many are nocturnal and are usually seen roosting quietly in trees during the day, but a few, such as the all-white Snowy owl or the Short-eared Owl, often hunt by day and may be seen in open country.
