I live on over 2 acres and shadow Hills California. I absolutely love owls. They keep yucky critters out of here. And they're very neat about their kills. They roll everything up in a ball. They eat every sort of rodent imaginable.

Sometimes though they do keep me awake I call them Hooties because they're up all night hooting away and I understand that that's supposed to be a way that they alert other owls to claim Territory. But if you haven't had sleep for a while hearing them Howell away is a little difficult. Anyway I would love to hear any stories that you have about owls. My name is Carol.

Oct 17, Diet Most owls are active year-round and most species eat every day. Owls have a low percentage of body fat during the warm months of the year.
However, during the cold months, the percentage of body fat does increase in some owl species such as the snowy owl. These fat reserves provide energy when food is scarce. Metabolism The rate of metabolism turning food into energy in owls is generally quite high. As a result, owls must eat frequently, which also means that they must hunt frequently. Small owls, such as the elf owl, have extremely high metabolisms that require them to consume enough prey to equal half of their body weight every day.
Larger owls have slower metabolisms and eat less than smaller owls do in proportion to their body weight. The Snowy owl has a metabolism which at times greatly differs from that of all other owls. It might fast for over a month during winter due to the scarcity of prey. During the fasting period, the snowy owl relies heavily on its fat reserves to keep it going. Owls, like most birds, cannot chew their food and usually eat their prey whole.
Most of the time, they do not separate edible parts of the prey from the inedible ones.
