    And not just that, the owls can also alert you when danger is coming or when it's near, eagles should be in Minecraft too.

    Some ideas. So don't quote me on this, but Mojang has some sort of thing where they don't want some of the players to get the wrong idea and do stuff like feed parrots with a cookie or try to make a fox a pet. One thing Minecraft has done with foxes is they made it so foxes can trust players. So wild foxes will run away, but the baby of foxes that were bred aren't scared of players. They don't follow players, but if a mob hurts a player they trust, they protect the player. What might be interesting is if owls worked in a similar fashion where they can't be tamed, but they can trust the player. Trusting owls should be able to occasionally approach players and perch on the player. Owls are also a bit like cats in their behavior. Perhaps they could scare away creepers and phantoms that approach a player they trust. And maybe sleeping near an owl could result in the owl bringing gifts. So foxes are to wolves as owls are to cats.

    I like this idea, but I think another use for an owl mob, would have it help you in battle (similar to a wolf), by attacking enemies and animals kind of like how a phantom would, except it would dive bomb the enemy or attacked mob, and shoot strait down out of the sky and claw at the enemy or attacked mob.

    I think it should also be a neutral mob and attack the player if the player attacks it, when it is not tamed.

    I also think it should avoid any mob that has a ranged attack.

    Overall, with all the ideas listed above (including the person who posted this idea) put together, would make this a really good mob.

    I like the idea. I can imagine it hooting in the mega taiga/taiga biomes. It could add so much more atmeshere. I could also imagine it in the new swamp biomes!

    It would be cool to add Owls in the Wild Update! It's fits the theme perfectly! 
    But, I think they should have another function, since this is one isn't that useful in a singleplayer game.

    yep 100% perfect but i see having a owl on your should a bit weird i mean especially if its of a different size to a parrot maybe a new animation that makes you hold your arm out a tiny bit?
