Meet Bubo. Well that is the name she is trying on for size right now. It is the Latin Genus name for owl. Great Horned Owl is Bubo viginianus. I thought the species name referred to the fact that Athena who had an owl familiar was a virgin goddess. Actually it is for the state Virginia.
If you are a fan of 1980's fantasy films you may remember that Bubo was the name of the metal owl sent from Athena to help guide Perseus to Medusa.
