Issue Date: November 5, 2008
November 5, 2008, the Marshall Islands Postal Service issued six new stamps celebrating owls. Featuring artwork by world-renowned wildlife artist Michael Warren, the stamps depict six majestic
owls: the Barn Owl, the Barred Owl, the Burrowing Owl, the Snowy Owl, the Great Horned Owl and Spotted Owls. The Barn Owl became a part of the rural farm centuries ago for the shelter and
plentiful sources of food. The brown and white Barred Owl favors the dense forests of North and Central America, and was a familiar sight to the Native Americans and early European settlers. The
Burrowing Owl prefers open country, especially prairies, and nests in holes in the ground. White as the windswept snows of its northern homelands, the Snowy Owl is a hardy bird of the open
tundra. The Great Horned Owl prefers the dense woodlands for nesting, but has been known to use caves and canyons as well. The mottled plumes of the Spotted Owl blend with the flickering shadows
of its forest refuge, making it almost impossible to detect.
