Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole Movie Screening

 Recently,
when I visited Feeqsays Network, I found out that there's this blogging contest to win a pair of tickets to the special screening of Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole. I have already watched the movie trailer in the cinema for a few times and I was really amazed by the details of the animation and from what I know, this epic fantasy filmis  based on the book series Guardians of The Owls of Ga’Hoole... So without thinking much longer, I decided to join the contest.

 Take a look at my favorite species of owl & some cool facts below too...

Snowy Owl range
Fast Facts

Did you know? Unlike most owls, which are nocturnal, snowy owls are diurnal—they hunt and are active both day and night.

The snowy owl's beautiful white plumage helps to hide it in its Arctic habitat. Only the males are completely white. Chicks are dark and spotted, while the females are white with spots on their wings.
The ghostlike snowy owl has unmistakable white plumage that echoes its Arctic origins.

These large owls breed on the Arctic tundra, where females lay a clutch of 3 to 11 eggs. Clutch size depends upon the availability of food, and in particularly lean times a usually monogamous pair of owls may not breed at all. Parents are territorial and will defend their nests against all comers—even wolves.

Young owls, especially males, get whiter as they get older. Females are darker than males, with dusky spotting, and never become totally white. Some elderly males do become completely white, though many retain small flecks of dusky plumage.




The snowy owl is a patient hunter that perches and waits to identify its prey before soaring off in pursuit. Snowy owls have keen eyesight and great hearing, which can help them find prey that is invisible under thick vegetation or snow cover. The owls deftly snatch their quarry with their sharp talons.

A snowy owl's preferred meal is lemmings—many lemmings. An adult may eat more than 1,600 lemmings a year, or three to five every day. The birds supplement their diet with rabbits, rodents, birds, and fish.

These magnificent owls sometimes remain year-round in their northern breeding grounds, but they are frequent migrants to Canada, the northern United States, Europe, and Asia. Lemming availability may determine the extent of southern migration, when owls take up summer residence on open fields, marshes, and beaches.

 So why this specific owl attract my attention and being my favorite species of owl?
 It was so obvious, it has nice white plumage or feathers... It is very cunning and it's a very hardworking owl... It hunts day and night unlike the normal nocturnal owls that only hunt at night.

In the Guardians of The Owls of Ga’Hoole, there's 3 character that are actually from this species which is Boron, Barran and the Auntie :)

  So for those who wanna grab a chance a pair of the movie screening as well, do check it out here!

I hereby ending this post with this exciting movie trailer! Enjoy! :)
