Owls are a very unique family that are classed as birds of prey, many stamp issues focus entirely on these birds. Hence it is time to have a discussion of the topic of stamps on owls.
This set is issued by Romania in 2013.

Hi Tants, There are several owls visiting the bird thread already, but owls are a favorite among many birders as well as stampers, so here is one of my favorites for the winter season, another Asio otus, the northern long-eared owl. This species is wide-spread across the northern hemisphere where it isn't too cold or too hot.

When I read the subject, I was wondering how the stamps would stay on the feathers. Now, I understand you are looking for owls on stamps, not the other way around, here is a set from Israel.

Another long-eared owl, Asio otus, this one by the famous bird artist A. Buzin of Belgium. Anyone collecting birds will be familiar with his marvelous paintings.

Have you ever seen this many owls (13) in one place together? Czech nature artists are masters of the trade. Design: Libuše and Jaromír Knotek, engraving: Martin Srb, 2015. Size 118 X 173 mm.

A cross-eyed barn owl! Normally barn owls have dark eyes and one can't really see if they are cross-eyed. Austria, 2009

This photograph of the long-eared owl (Asio otus) is quite special because this species isn't out and about much during the day. (2015)

This is another Asio otus the long-eared owl (2015). It is part of the series for BirdLife International, the world's oldest international conservation organisation, founded in 1922 by the Ornithologists Thomas Gilbert Pearson and Jean Théodore Delacour.

Family,

Shouldn't this thread be called "Owls on Stamps"?

An earlier BirdLife set issued by Belarus.



(Hi Jack, Your question was raised earlier in/on the thread; I think that little word on is one of the many words in the English language that make it so flexible, and may have contributed to it now being a world language. For example: do you have a book on stamps? Did you hear such-and-such on the radio? etc... And that's part of the fun of SC - it is so international! Greetings, K.)
