 Hi all :-)
I've not had much experience with totems aside from Spider but recently Owl has come into my life.  I have a basic idea of the associations for Owl-wisdom, stealth,etc but I'd love to know more about the gifts and lessons Owl has to bring.  Please help!  I'd be very grateful :-)

Some genera of owls have many species; the largest genus contains more than 50 species. Some owls of this genus are well known, such as the eastern screech owl of eastern North America. Many of the tropical species, however, are known from only a few museum specimens, and their habits have not been studied. All species belonging to the largest genus of owls look much alike, and . . . are differentiated most strongly by their distinctive voices. Among the largest species of owls are the eagle owls. They have tufts of feathers on their heads that are called "ears" but are not related to true ears. Only the great horned owl is found in the Americas, but there are 17 species in Europe, Africa, and Asia. Most widely distributed is the northern eagle owl, found from Scandinavia and Spain to Japan. It is about 71 cm (28 in) long. Smallest of the family is the elf owl of the southwestern United States and Mexico. It is 13 cm (5 in) long, and nests in woodpecker holes in large cacti.
