Hi,

I am not sure if this site was alredy somewhere as a link or post (if so, Deane, please let me know), but I came upon this recently and I think it might be interesting for those who are curious how our owls look like within and to compare to other birds as well:

Excellent link Tanja. Avian skeletons are quite unique in the animal kingdom.

There is also the skull gallery at owlpages.com:

From what I understand Cornell University has quite a large collection of "stuffed" owls (deceased), showing different feather patterns, skeletons, etc. I have only seen a picture of Snowy Whites, showing the different black spots between the male and female. It is more on the biological side.

I forgot, Bruce Marcot sent me a link earlier this month along the same lines - it is a site that has replica skulls and skeletons. Here is the birds section (including owls)
