    Or be able to attack mobs like how phantoms attack. Maybe different owls attack different.

    For example. Great horned owl have one swift powerful attack but a tawny owl has quick rapid attacks but not as strong

    Indeed Owls should be added and there should be different kind of owls which we can tame.

    they drop feathers and they can fly, I would love to be wandering around spruce trees at night and hear the peaceful howling of the owl as I wander to my bed

    Maybe you could have snowy owls in cold biomes and tawny owls in forests/plains. Would have to look up other breeds of owls to put in the other biomes.

    It’d be cool if the owls would attack rabbits, silverfish, spiders, fish etc

    I would like it if owls scared spiders like cats scare creepers. I would build owl roost on the walls of my base. The system for owls delivering items sounds interesting. Maybe the owl returns to their nest with the item. They will drop the item for a spider eye like a fox does for berries. Owls could be immune to poison and could eat spider eyes. If you make your owl sit, anyone can cause the owl to unsit by feeding it a spider eye. They could then give the owl an item and it would return to it's nest with it.

    Finally! what I expected, yes there are mods with buhós and more animals but sometimes people do not know or can not install it, then we could have owls without downloading mobs, and I suggest that in the day they sleep and at night their eyes shine and this wakes up (without commenting that their head turns 270 degrees as in real life)

    I LOVE the idea. Probably b/c by skin is an owl. I think they should be like wolves, so when you attack them they attack you. About the letter idea, i think its a cool and unique idea but we have chat in Minecraft. I believe they should be able to carry items not books. If you still could send letters with them I think, unlike Harry Potter, size does not matter how many pages the owl can carry, but they would be more like Lamas with a chance of having room for lots of pages. All in all I think this would be a great idea combined with other animals and maybe trees and bushes that contain various types of fruit.

    this is an absolutely lovely idea for mail posts

     

    Delivery: the owl will begin chasing that player the book is for, and then when it's succesful, it will land on that player's shoulder for 10 seconds, and then it'll return to it's owner, but this'd likely operate if the book had a true player's name on it, meaning fake ones will not work

     

    Failure: it will return if the player ran away from the owl when it became close to the player (atleast if the distance of the owl and the player goes over 20, this will result in failure, causing the owl to return to it's tamer, otherwise, but the owl must have gotten into 10 blocks to the player in order for the owl to think the delivery was failure, practically meaning the owl will simply reject how the player ran from the delivery owl, and return

     

    Lost: Lost owls usually will wander until they notice their tamer (note that Tamed Owls are attached to players they were named by, but if a different player tries to give it a tag, the owl will simply leap into the air and land) Give the owl a compass if it's gotten lost before or your scared it'll become lost, this requires 2 compasses, the owl will navigate to the other Compass, otherwise, Notes and colours must be applied to compasses (blue to yellow, green to red) the colour of the compass you give it will make it want that compass now, and you must show it the other colour to the owl in order for it to understand, and it will be on it's way soon after it has been trained

    in my opinion owls should not be tamed and only spawn in dark oak forests and drop feathers

    Oooh and what if , in a multiplayer, when the owl is delivering messages from one person to another, a different person can bait the owl in with some food and intercept the message.

    Different variety of owls would be nice 👍🏽

    like hunter owls that hunt small animals

    And maybe they could (wild) drop random items onto players (as they are so wise)
    maybe items which are ancient, like an item which helps keep pets in their baby form forever

    si podrían ser mensajeros, o que tengan la mecánica de los gatos que en la noche te traen ofrendas o regalos con probabilidades mayores a la de los gatos al ser una animal nocturno.

     I really like this idea. However, I wouldn't want them to "live" on my shoulder all the time, as parrots do. This would be better if they could perch in a nearby tree, on the ground, or on a staff/stick that could be carried or placed on a block, similar to the "lead".

    If they were added they'd have to make them only hoot during the night cos that would be weird otherwise

    This would be a great idea! The difference between owls and parrots is that owls live in different biomes (maybe taiga, or snowy taiga?) and can aid you in battle by swooping down and scratching enemies with their talons. They would also probably have more lives. For different biomes there could be different variants (snowy owls to snowy taiga, barn owls to villages near taiga and plains, great greys to taiga, and oak forests and so on).

    I think owls should have ten health points.

    There should be some different species. Great horned owls would live in roofed forests, mega taigas, and taigas. Snowy owls live in tundras exclusively (not snowy taigas). Burrowing owls live in the ground in deserts. Barn owls live in taigas, roofed forests, forests, mega taigas, and, if nearby, plyer buildings or villages. They are all different sizes and have somewhat unique calls. Great horned owls are the largest, then snowy owls, barn owls are 3rd, and burrowing owls are the smallest. These would be very nice ambient mobs, too.

    I'd like it if owls could help fight mobs like wolves do, they are birds of prey after all.

    No books or sending written things. I do like the idea of owls being in the game and If there were mice and other birds having the owl glide down and capture the mouse would be a cool edition, Taming them would be nice and a something being built around them maybe being able to set them off to attack something and returning to you after a while.

    We do need more animals and wild life in minecraft.

    What you what could also be added is, they are like dogs. If you or someone attacks you, they will fight beside you. You can also get them in brown colors, black, grey and white. Then when they die they drop bones and feathers and sometimes meat. And yo can sit them like a parrot.
