Storyline

For centuries, the mysterious nighttime lives and uncanny hunting skills of owls have made them fascinating hallmarks of children's stories and folk tales the world over. But what actually makes owls so special? Bird trainers Lloyd and Rose Buck and their very special family of owls, eagles, falcons, geese, pigeons, and two newly-hatched barn owls - Luna and Lily - provide a rare opportunity to learn more about these unique birds. Using the latest in camera technology, computer graphics, x-rays and super-sensitive microphones, we can take a brand new look at owls in more detail than ever before. The real stories behind how they hunt, how their vision and hearing works, and how they fly so silently are influencing 21st century technology and design.

The Quiet Flyer's Kryptonite
25 June 2016 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

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 an 8-star rating.
