The beautiful, wise and dark owl is typically female in British folklore and a figure to be respected. People typically never speak Ill of her and this respect is thought to come from a long standing recognition that the owl has an otherworldly quality. Being a creature who can inhabit the darkness well, has sometimes led to the owl screeching being interpreted as a warning to those who hear it.
