While only a few Flyby’s & Deet’s were seen and heard, Kanga was the lone lucky witness to the sights and sounds from our owls. We do wish Mel & Sydney the best as they continue educating all the babies their technique of hunting. On second thought we just may find the at the Palmz Cowlntry Club!
The most unique adaptation of Owl feathers is the comb-like or fimbriate (fringe-like) leading edge of the primary wing feathers referred to as "flutings" or "fimbriae".With an Owl's wing, the comb-like feather edge breaks down the turbulence into little groups called micro-turbulences. This effectively muffles the sound of the air rushing over the wing surface and allows the Owl to fly silently.
