So what does the bible say about owls you might ask? Look up Leviticus 11:13-19. In this passage God is advising the Israelites not to eat of the flying creatures of which owls are listed.
This special diet would protect the Israelites while they traveled. With a specific variety of food, it lessened their chances of catching diseases carried in certain types of birds.
