Do owls hunt rabbits? Yes! depending upon the size of the owl they hunt rabbits or other mammals, birds, rodents, crabs, and insects. Also, few species of owls are experts in catching fish but in truth, owls are opportunistic to eat whatever is available on the table/ground.

Owls eyesight and hearing & Wings:
Owls are gifted ears and body structures for deep hearing ability. Even the slightest noise and under the snow, leaves, and a few inches of ground can be heard by an owl. Owls have super far vision to scan their prey over the forest or grassland and also an ultra night vision. But having said it comes with a minus too, things very close to their eyes appear blurry and they mostly sense with the body and feathers. Owls have 3 eyelids for sleeping, blinking, and cleaning which makes their eyes are super protected.
Wings of owl: Unlike normal birds, owls have special wings with patterns, comb-like projections, and velvet feathers that muffle noise and help them in silent flying and gliding. Which is very unlikely for its prey, as it’s very hard to notice the owl is approaching it. Large wings and light slender body is added advantage for flying up to 40 miles/hour.
Can owls turn their head 360? No! not really. Owls can turn their head around up to 270 degrees, which also comes with a plus and minus. Their eyes are fixed inside a bony socket and they can’t move their eyes. Instead, they turn their heads (135+135) and also turn their head nearly upside down. Owls’ eyes are tubular and have an amazing binocular vision to focus on their prey, but things that are closer appear to be blurred.
