Excellent show about owls and new research which shows how well adapted to nature these clever birds are. Answers the question of why they're nocturnal, how they are such successful hunters, and how they interact with other predators. A family which raises wild birds has a large role in this addition, and seeing owls in their home is a real "hoot"!

Owl Power explores owls' superpowers and features incredible footage I've come to expect from the Nature series on PBS.

Have you ever taken a night-time walk into Burnaby's Central Park? Well, if you have, then there is probably a very good chance that you've heard the distinct and haunting "hoot!" of an owl as it sits perched in a tree, somewhere nearby.

"Owl Power" is definitely a very educational nature-documentary that is sure to help the viewer to better understand all aspects of the owl's super-amazing abilities. From its silent flying, to its radar-hearing, to its night-time hunting, and beyond - This first-rate program certainly covers it all.

Professionally presented through the PBS Network - This fascinating, 50-minute documentary will, without a doubt, have you looking at owls in a whole, new light from now on.

*Note* - The video-clip that I've uploaded here is certainly well-worth a view.

From their silent flight, to their radar-like hearing, to their astounding night-vision, to their unique appearance - I think owls (Yes. All 240 different species of them) are, without a doubt, one of the absolute coolest birds on the entire face of this planet.

And, with their amazing "super" abilities - I think owls put the likes of eagles, parrots and crows in a 2nd place position in the world of birds. I really do.

And, you know - Perhaps after watching "Owl Power" you just may find yourself in total agreement with what I say about these remarkable creatures-of-the-night. Yes. No doubt, you'll be completely surprised when you find out how many degrees an owl can actually turn its head around without any strain.

With its excellent camera-work and its educational narration - "Owl Power" is an impressive nature-production from PBS that is, most definitely, worth a 4-star rating.

Unique, informative, and it was presented in a fascinating way that did not let go of my attention ...

The power of owls. I never knew their flapping wings make no sound whatsoever when they fly. Fascinating!

As is generally the case with PBS, this is another fine documentary, well put together. The lives of owls, their rich variety across the world, and the way they have supremely evolved is examined in depth, with both footage of owls in the wild and what can best be described as domestic owls. They're already impressive birds, and all the more so when one picks up so much detail about what makes them so formidable.
