Owls are often thought of as mysterious creatures, no doubt due to the fact that they’re a quiet lot that keeps to themselves for the most part. But really, they’re just a bit introverted, and once they get to know you, they’re full of funny little jokes and idle conversation. You just have to put the time in. That’s one reason we recommend ordering an owl necklace from Camp Hollow today. Start by wearing it once a week, then bump it up slowly and soon the two of you will be the best of friends!
Barn Owl Necklaces
The Camp Hollow owl necklace depicts the elusive barn owl — so hard to find in areas without barns! The truth is, barn owls have been around a lot longer than barns. Back then, they were just called “owls.” But when people started building barns, the owls couldn’t resist the ease with which they could make a cozy nest that would stay dry, and they began inhabiting these structures regularly.
For the most part, the barn owners didn’t mind, because the owls preyed on the vermin in the barn like mice, which was helpful. There will always be a few people, however, who don’t like barn owls and will Google, “Why are barn owls so creepy?”
To be fair, if you squint and tilt your head at just the right angle, the hallmark ring around a barn owl’s face can kind of make it look like a disembodied head. And the barn owl’s call can be interpreted as something other than soothing. Plus, they hunt under a cloak of darkness, silently stalking their prey.
There’s Something That Loves a Barn Owl
So maybe you can see why it’s only truly special people who love owls. These are the kinds of people who understand and respect the fact that we all look and sound different, and we all need to find a way to feed ourselves, and these people not only don’t judge the owls, but they embrace them for their tenacity, cleverness and endurance.
Over the years, owls have gotten a reputation for being especially wise. There is even a poem about it:
A wise old owl lived in an oak,
The more he saw, the less he spoke
The less he spoke, the more he heard,
Now, wasn't he a wise old bird?
Of course lots of creatures are quiet. Giraffes. Worms. Goldfish. But somehow, the owl got the reputation of being wise. This is why you so frequently see them wearing glasses, because as we all know, people with glasses are smarter because they read more, and not just Tom Clancy novels either — sometimes nonfiction! Their penchant for reading only feeds their reputation as standoffish, unfortunately.
