Features of Owls

Owl, found in most regions on earth except Antarctica
they are carnivorous, birds of prey, hunting mammals
their face has large forward-facing eyes and ear holes
Most birds of prey have eyes on the side of the head

they are carnivorous, birds of prey, hunting mammals
they must turn their entire head to change their view
Most birds of prey have eyes on the side of the head
A flat face with a hawk-like beak and farsighted eyes

they must turn their entire head to change their view
having farsighted vision working well in low light times
A flat face with a hawk-like beak and farsighted eyes
their feather adaption gives the ability to fly almost silently

having farsighted vision working well in low light times
fourteen neck vertebrae make their neck more flexible
their feather adaption gives the ability to fly almost silently
feathers not waterproof, wet weather struggle to survive

fourteen neck vertebrae make their neck more flexible
their face has large forward-facing eyes and ear holes
feathers not water proof, wet weather struggle to survive
owls found in most regions on earth except Antarctica

How to write Pantoum Poetry:

Line 1

Line 2

Line 3

Line 4

Line 5 (repeat of line 2)

Line 6

Line 7 (repeat of line 4)

Continue with as many stanzas as you wish, but the ending stanza, then repeats the second and fourth lines of the previous stanza (as its first and third lines), and also repeats the third line of the first stanza, as its second line, and the first line of the first stanza as its fourth. So the first line of the poem is also the last.

Last stanza:

Line 2 of the previous stanza

Line 3 of the first stanza

Line 4 of the previous stanza

Line 1 of the first stanza
