The card back for the owl deck!

The back features every court symbol, as well as owl representatives from each court: Great Horned, Eastern Screech, Great Grey, and Barn Owl. At the front is the extinct Laughing Owl. I chose an extinct species for the card back as a way to look back on the extremely successful past that owls have had.

During my time spent on tumblr perusing photos of cute baby animals, I’ve seen a lot of photosets where a photo of a very cute plush doll was misidentified as a real baby owl. And I happen to think the real thing is fantastically adorably awkward and deserves to be cooed over too. So here is a photoset of actual baby owls for your viewing pleasure.
