Owls are large birds known for their beautiful feathers and stunning eyes. Learn how to draw an owl face so you can sketch your new favorite bird.

Owls come in a wide range of colors and sizes. While many owls are big, some owls are only six inches tall.

Burrowing owls live underground and come out during the day, which is unusual for owls.

Some people think that owls are spooky birds. They come out at night to hunt, hoot in the darkness and peer at you with their giant eyes.

Other people see owls as wise animals who give advice to other forest creatures.

You might not be able to have a pet owl, but you could see one at your local zoo or bird sanctuary. You could also put an owl house in the backyard and wait for an owl to move in.

In the meantime, draw a cartoon owl face and have fun coloring the feathers.

No drawing is perfect the first time, so start with a pencil sketch. Afterward, outline the drawing and use your favorite coloring tools, like markers, crayons or colored pencils.
