My guess would be that you have a real fondness for this bird of prey and are looking for an owl calendar that will assist you in keeping track of your appointments and personal activities for the coming year. Owls have been either revered or looked at with disdain with the cultures of man for centuries. The Hindu see the owl as a sign of good luck while other people associate this bird of the night as one who is very wise. Institutions for knowledge like universities and libraries have often used the owl as a part of their logo over the years. Some see the owl has a harbinger of death or as a bad omen. It is sometimes seen as a symbol of the dark arts and magic by some societies.
The owl has gained some resurgence in popularity from the fans of the popular Harry Potter novels and movies. The series of fantasy books Guardians of Ga’Hoole also brought a renewed interest in these extremely interesting birds.
Obviously, since you are here you are looking for owls that are featured in calendars so let me show you some options that are currently available.

The tallest owl found in the world is the Great Grey Owl who lives in the Northern Hemisphere. It can grow to 33 inches tall with an average of about 27 inches. This species might be the tallest but it is not the heaviest. There are two species of owls that are about 1 inch shorter but weigh about 10 pounds and have a wingspan that can reach to about 6 1/2 feet. Now that is a huge owl! The Eurasian Eagle Owl and the Blakiston’s Fish Owl can be that large. They are found in areas of Eurasia like Japan and Russia.
