How far can an Owl turn its Head If you have ever walked around a perched owl, you may have been amused at the way it seemed in danger of twisting its head off as it turned to watch your every movement. Unlike the eyes of most birds, the owl's eyes point straight ahead. In order to change the direction of its glance, the owl must turn its whole head. Extra bones in its neck provide such great flexibility that the owl can turn its head a full three-quarter turn. When the owl can turn its head no farther in one direction, it quickly snaps its head around and continues to watch from the other direction.
