I have a African Spotted eagle owl in a very old large bottle brush tree in my garden that I watch - I have build him (or her) a box and fixed it near where "it" always roosts.

A bit of a spooky story - A friend who lives close by has horses and a fairly large property. One of his horses was very ill and clearly dying. His daughter was staying up with the horse through the night. She noted a spotted eagle owl sitting on a fence post watching her for some time. It then took off and flew towards her passing so close that evidently she felt its wing touch her. It then sat close by in the grass for the whole night. The horse died in the night. For a number of weeks after this the owl remained and came so close that it could be fed, I am told that it allowed the people to come to within a meter of it. Here in darkest Africa it is said that the "black people" believe that the owl carries the dead spirits away. My neighbour also watches the owls (he said he regularly sees two together) he has an ongoing fight with his gardener who keeps chasing the owls away and will threatening them. The blacks are very superstitious and rather simple in their logic, unfortunately.

I did a speech all about owls and owl myths a few years ago, apparently the oldest picture that has ever been found was in a cave in America, it is over 30,000 years old.

I don't know if that was the type of thing you were looking for but I wanted to contribute.

Someone told me that politicians tilt their heads to one side in imitation of an owl because it makes them look wiser (??).

Most disturbing is the description of police officers killed flying witch scare. The witch said to the flight from the edge of the forest areas, police officers live. This is very positive, not unlike some tytos. It is said there is no obvious legs, but the white hands of a very long, sharp nails

The Owl Man of Mawnan is a fairly well known one in England. There's a short documentary of this myth on Youtube which I came across this week: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y3vmr4o0e5g
