We humans think owls are wise and smart just because they have cool and can't_be_bothered look but the truth is this behaviour is a defence mechanism to hide the constantly tense owl.
Can't believe it? Take, for example, the way they blink - sometimes they can't even relax to blink with both their eyes so they do it separately to make sure everything is under control. Yes, yes, it is true their blink is slow and calm but this is the only way to mislead us. Owls do something similar with their heads and bodies - bodies bring relaxed image while their heads have evolved to do all the work by turning and tilting in every possible direction to keep an eye (or two) on everything around.
This is the Owl CSS quest. Don't hesitate to show their true anxious nature.
