What’s the meaning of seeing an owl in daylight?

All of us are aware that owls are mysterious creatures. It is not because we don’t know too much about them. Instead, there’s something in their gaze, and overall nature can seemingly drown us to their existence. They have a calm and peaceful appearance. However, it is undeniable that there’s a depth to them. They are profound creatures. 

It is for this reason why there are many cultures in the world see this particular bird special. It has been used to symbolize a lot of stuff, especially on the aspects of wisdom and life. 

However, one of the most prevalent queries about these owls is their appearance during daylight. After all, they are nocturnal creatures. When you meet them while the sun is still up, there’s a good chance that it is an extraordinary encounter. If you are interested, you can know the possible meanings behind such experience. Read on. 

Meaning Of Seeing An Owl In Daylight

The context and setting of this encounter somehow establish its actual implications. 

The day represents light. Of course, the latter resonates with goodness, justice, and hope. When you encounter the owl in the day, there’s a great possibility that there’s an enlightening experience that will come in your life. You will unfold a page in your existence in where you can feel awakened and full of hope.

owl symbolism

Keep in mind that the owl can represent the depth of all things. Therefore, the things that you are about to experience will impact your life to its core. They can make drastic changes in you, especially in your mindset, outlook, and motivations. 

For instance, the wisdom being ushered to you by the owl is something that is beyond this realm. There is a chance that it came from your guardian angels or from beings that are significantly higher than us. You can say that such a discovery does not happen on a daily basis. Everything about it is special and surreal.

Of course, don’t ever think that such a gift is for your own consumption only. Being blessed with enlightenment, foresight, and knowledge does not happen just for self-gratification and fulfilment. They are there because you need to utilize for the greater good. Don’t worry. You are not tasked to change the world here. Instead, you just need to use your gift to give delight and hope to the people around you. 

Instinctively, we see owls as our guardians. Just like what I’ve said, their presence is quite reassuring. Given the fact that you have encountered an own in broad daylight, then there’s nothing ominous that you should feel about it. Instead, you can somehow sense that they are there to guard and guide you. That alone is a big deal already. It is a guarantee that the heavens don’t want you to be in dangerous situations.

Other Possible Meanings Of Seeing An Owl During The Day

There are other things that can be stumbled upon when dissecting the exact nature of your encounter with a daylight owl. At this point, it is already essential to assess the owl as a spirit animal. In this way, you can figure out what it is trying to relay to you. 

Certainly, people are seeking for the potential meanings behind this spirit animal. I’ve encountered several people who are searching for the owl symbolism and the owl meaning in the Bible. But at the end of the tunnel, these different queries will just give the same answers. 

Intuition

Intuition

Not all of us have been gifted with intuition. While it is natural to think that we are born with this capability, only a few can utilize it properly. Those people that have keen senses can determine the things that are happening around them. It is quite difficult to catch them off guard. Furthermore, they can make decisions based on gut-feeling rather than logic. In stressful situations, such a skill is quite helpful.

The owl is among the few spirit animals that are directly related to this particular ability. This bird is not only about wisdom and intelligence. It also has its own fair share of clairvoyance and the skill to see past through things.

When you encounter an owl during the day, it means that you have this talent. However, you are barely using it. The light of the day encourages you to practice it. Sure enough, you can use your intuition not only for your own benefit but for others as well. It is a gift that you can share with the people around you.


Spirit For Adventure

Spirit For Adventure

Despite their seemingly timid nature, owls are natural adventurers. They don’t spend their time in one place alone. Instead, they fly around to explore uncharted territories. They want to see the world and discover new things on their journey. 

Your encounter with the owl proves that after all, you really have something for adventure. Therefore, you shouldn’t hesitate to leave your comfort zone. Staying idle and complacent is the biggest mistake that you can ever make. You can’t learn new stuff or acquire further knowledge if you do not step out from your borders. The world has a lot to offer. Try to experience them by yourself. While doing so, you’ll realize that you have the gift to understand the meanings of your experiences.

Be courageous to learn and explore. There’s nothing wrong if you will fly. The mere fact that you have seen the owl during the day is proof that you are being encouraged to go out! 

The hunger for adventure is one of the most appropriate answers that I give to people who are seeking to know the owl hooting meaning.

Bottom Line

Owls are beautiful creatures. They may not be the fiercest and strongest, but definitely, you can consider them to be the most insightful and meaningful. It is for this reason why a lot of people are drawn to them. They are majestic and simply worth witnessing. 

Having special encounters with this bird is frankly a blessing. Not all are given the opportunity to feel a strong connection with this bird. If you deem that you are linked to this creature somehow, treasure it. Try to understand what’s the role of the owl in your life. While doing so, emulate its good traits. See the owl not only as a spirit animal but a guide that will help you make your life better and fruitful.

  1. Yesterday morning my partner and I were walking our usual route to a local cafe, when all of a sudden, to my left, I heard the sound of taunting crows. When my eyes adjusted I was surprised to see a Barred Owl up in the tree. We met eyes and he continued to hold his ground while being berated by the mischievous creatures.

    Later on, during our walk to a nearby lake, we heard the sweet little song of a hummingbird on a nearby branch. I have never in my whole life experienced either of these two things and I was blessed by some worldly presence to experience both, in such a short amount of time… What could this mean?

    • Hello. Thanks for reaching out.

      All of these instances and encounters have positive implications, and I do feel that you are indeed a blessed perrson.

      The birds that you had seen are your guardian angels. The first one reminded you that you will always be protected from harm. No amount of trouble can jeopardize your life and peace of mind. The owl simply told you that you should keep moving forward despite adversaries. Even in the circumstance you are in is quite difficult, there’s a guarantee that you won’t fail or lose. You can gain success despite the odds.

      The secord bird told that you’ll have a peaceful life. You will attain a life that is free from worries and stress. Of course, this doesn’t mean that you will not encounter challenges in your life. The only difference here is that you have been given the ability to maintain inner peace and composure. For me, such a gift is divine.

  2. This morning my fiancé and I went out to smoke and saw a huge owl (I think it was a great grey) we got a picture of him. He would glance our way occasionally but then my fiancé went inside the owl looked right at me and we just stared at each other. Then I looked at my phone to txt my fiancé the ingredients I needed him to pick up from the store and I heard a screech from a bird so I looked up to find this big woodpecker that hangs around chasing the owl deeper into our woods. I feel like there was more than meets the eye—been trying to research it for hours but nothing has struck a cord until your article so just was hoping you could hopefully shed some light on the situation?? Thank you.

      You see, we can always treat your situation as something normal. Birds do often shoo away other birds.

      However, since you felt something strange or special about the owl, I cannot disregard the possibility that the situation has a deeper context.

      The owl that you have seen could be your guardian. It was there watching you and your fiance–and that comes with a reason. Maybe there’s a difficult circumstance that is coming your way and the owl is telling you to be prepared. The woopecker that disturbed the owl might symbolize some spiritual hindrances. At this point, you might need to contemplate and reconnect yourself to God. By doing this, the protection of your guardian angels can come through.

  3. Four years ago my brother in law passed and a few months later my sister came to visit me in Florida. She went into my backyard and came running in and said there was an owl in our tree, that was in the morning. It was a great horned owl and we had never seen one in our yard before. My sister passed a week ago and the first viewing was this morning at 11:00 but I could not make it due to my recovering from spinal surgery. I took my usual walk in our my back yard right before 11:00, heard a little faint chatter, and up in the same tree almost the same branch is a great horned owl. I could not believe it. I spoke to it because I felt she came to tell me she was ok and she was with her husband. The owl looked me right in the eyes as I spoke. I was floored!!! She could not have been more obvious!!!! I have pictures of both owls.

      Honestly, I am quite impressed by the timing of the appearance of the horned owl. Based on what you have told me, all of your encounters are not ordinary.

      We should remember that owls are connected to the spiritual world. Specifically, they carry the spirits of the people who we love. They are there to ensure that you are okay. But this time, I can see that the horned owl is speaking right through you. I don’t know if you have realized it but the owl somehow wants to guide you. Whatever tribulations or difficulties in your life, these spirits will guide you to safety and success.

      When it looked at you, it means that your guardian angels are listening. Therefore, don’t forget to pray and meditate. Always commune them for guidance!

  5. I was driving this morning (9Am) when a huge owl flew so close to my windshield. It was scary but beautiful at the same time.
    Then I got to my work as I was organizing some stuff near to the window saw it again I don’t know if it was the same or another one. It flew and stand in next building but staring at my window I looked at him for a minute I truly didn’t give much importance or attention and went back to work ( he stand there for more time) but I’ve been thinking about it all day.

  6. I have been seeing an owl at night sitting on a fence rail 30 feet from my back door. this has occurred 4 times in the last month. Today I saw the owl in a tree outside my kitchen window in broad daylight.
    I watched it with the binoculars since it was 40 feet away we just stared at each other for about five minuets. It felt disconcerting yet calming.

  7. Hello! I just saw a beautiful owl! I believe it was a barn owl. It was a dark brown and tan. Not only was it in the daytime 25 feet from me staring at me but it was also pouring down the rain! I have always love and respected owls, but this occurrence was shocking at first that I spotted him but then I we just stared at each other until he flew away! I feel so blessed and relaxed now. WHAT does all this mean???

  8. Hello, Three nights ago I heard an owl screech. Last night as I walked out my home I heard a different kind of screech and I looked to the tree above me to see the owl but it flew by over me. It was a white owl and flying the same direction I was walking towards too. In the past I hear the screech and I get nervouse of whats coming. This time I saw the white owl, in which I did feel protection and not negative messages coming . But who knows. What do you think of this? Thank you for your time.

    • Hello. Thanks for reaching out. What you have experienced is something that we can call “supernatural.” Owls are aloof creatures. They don’t mingle with humans or other birds. When they interact with you in some manner, they are driven by external forces. Based on your story, it seems that the owl is ushering your guidance and wisdom. Keep in mind that a spirit animal, the white owl represents knowledge and spiritual insight. You have been told that you should not fear the unknown. You have guardians that will protect you wherever you are.

  10. Hi Carol! I am going through a lot of big and scary changes right now. Just yesterday the fears and anxiety seemed to be suffocating me. Last night I went to close my curtains in my bedroom and met eyes with a white rabbit just outside my window. I thought that it was a positive sign and thanked it. Today I saw a big brown owl in the daytime while driving. I thought it was a hawk as I have seen on my drives many times but it turned its head my direction and made itself known. Are these both positive signs for me? Any further insight? This article was incredibly insightful. I can’t wait to read more from you. Thank you

    • Hello. Thanks for reaching out. I hope you are doing fine. Rest assured, all your worries and pressures will soon come to pass. When you saw the rabbit, there’s a symbolic meaning behind it. Based on your situation, the rabbit reflects you. Rabbits love to chew and chewing is often associated with overthinking and contemplation. It is reminding you that the burden you are experiencing right now is partly caused by the anxieties and worries you put yourself. You need to stop thinking too much, as it will break you. You need to be that brown owl, which represents wisdom and determination. Instead of taxing yourself, use your energy to meditate and seek the inner courage in you. Doing these things could help you move thru and make a breakthrough.

  11. Hi, Yesterday I was sitting in my office when I saw a Owl sitting just outside my office cabin glass window. It had got into the office lobby and had to be there whole day. So for the whole it was sitting in front of my office glass window. Had been looking for the message it wanted to convey, the message my guardians wanted to convey. I took its presence in postive sense..yet wanted to know what specific message was being conveyed, when I happened to see your post.

  13. January of 2000 my neighbor comes knocking on my door telling me to come out side that in the 23 years he lived in his house that this is the second time this condor has come to the tree very tall pine tree. It’s very semi foggy out and overcast out side almost noon time and I come out there it was. I was in gazed over it. Then I went inside my neighbor comes home for lunch everyday so she can let her dog out to use the restroom. So I stop her in her tracks to explain to her what had happened about 20 to 30 minutes before that. So she goes in to do what she’s there for on lunch break. I’m still in my front yard her unit and my unit are connected. A dublex then all of a sudden an owl comes from her back yard at my height flying about 12 feet from me staring at me a goldenish orange and white owl past me by then all of a sudden a lot of black crows start pecking at this owl the owl is heading to the tree the condor was at prior to this happening 20 to 30 minutes prior the fog is gone and the sky is clearing at this point and goes in the tree about 30 seconds later the owl comes out of the tree and crows still pecking at it I can see this untill I could no longer see the birds the houses then blocked my view. What are the meanings of why this happened that day.

  14. I had an owl on my tree post right by my porch and he refused to leave and just stared at me…he put his wings up if I got too close, but he stayed so long I ended up going inside. I could definitely feel like it was trying to tell me something.. I live in Las Vegas. We don’t see many owls like this. He let me walk right up to him and wouldnt leave. I dont know if my link will work to see the pictures I took, but I could send them. I’m really curious about this now 🙂

    • Hello. Thanks for reaching out.

      Based on your experience, the owl symbolizes an encompassing to leave. Its refusal to leave simply means that there’s a sense of urgency to this. I am quite aware that owls are rare in Vegas, and in that context, we can determine that its visit to your home is far from ordinary. It is watching you and your family. It is reminding you that you have to be cautious at all times. You have to protect yourself and your family (if you are living with them) from emotional and physical stressors.

      There’s also a possibility that the owl is a messenger sent by your guardian angels. It is extending its wings as a form of proof that they are there and that they are guiding you.

    • Hello. Thanks for reaching out. Of course, there’s nothing wrong about the owl. That is something that I can guarantee. When the owl came to you, it searched your soul. In the same manner, it wants you to do the same. Search your heart and unleash every good and beautiful there. Iy wants you to exercise your inner wisdom so that you can see life in a more profound perspective. The appearance of the owl in the mornig is a sign that it is a blessing.

  16. This evening I went on a nature walk and picked a small bouquet of flowers. I walked to a bridge with a creek underneath it and took a moment to be thankful for everything around me. I dropped the flowers into the creek as my way to say thanks and as I did the sun began to shine directly on me from out of the clouds and shine on me all the way home. Anyway after this I heard some owls near me and this was in broad daylight. I also some some other birds (hawks maybe) that flew near me to my way home. I know that was a long story and probably sounds made up but I feel really good about it and I feel like the owls are a sign of a good change. I’m not sure tho

  17. With all that’s happening in the world right now in the midst of the corona pandemic. At first It just seemed like another unusual happening to see an owl such a beautiful, intriguing creature in the middle of the day just sitting in a tree looking at us. My son first saw it & pointed it out to me. As he approached it to take a closer look I watched it watch him. Then I saw it look back at me & then back to my son. I wish the owl could talk, for I felt like he was trying to say something. It never left. Dark came & I can’t see it anymore. But it was a sight to behold while I could.

    • This is one of the only sites that I could find anything about this that was actually meaningful. I’ve always had a good intuition and lately, I’ve been feeling ways I haven’t really felt before.

      Anyway, to get to the point: I was riding my bike home after hanging out with some people the other night and for some reason, I decided to stop and look to my right. There was about five or six barn owls sitting together and just staring at me. All were making eye contact with me, except one who was eating something. I thought I must be dreaming, but I wasn’t. It was the most bizarre encounter I’ve ever had with any person or animal. I lost track of time for about 10 minutes and I just remember pulling up to my house on my bike shocked.

      It was all very confusing and I don’t know what to think of it. For some reason, I’ve been drawn to remote viewing since yesterday out of nowhere. Something inside of myself has been telling me I need to learn how to do it. I know this seems crazy, but do you think any of it is related? I’ve never known barn owls to be in big parliaments like that and I’ve always been drawn to owls… but now even more so. It just shocked me and I haven’t been the same since. I don’t know how to feel.

  21. Greetings! An Owl watches me and my family pray this morning in our usual family prayers. It was watching us through the window as we pray while other birds were competing with us with their sound. It was my son who sighted the Owl and pointed it out to me.

  22. I had an owl fly out from a woods (during the day like 10 am) at the exact time I was driving by and it hit the side of my van a little bit. I looked back and he was flopping on the side of the road. So I was worried I injured it, but I was on my way to an appointment. Then not even a half mile down the road another owl (? couldn’t have been the same one ?) on the road with it’s wings spread out. When I approached I slowed down, it took off and looked back at me! I called someone to go check on the first owl about 15 minutes later and it was gone, thank goodness. I found it weird and have been thinking about researching signs. So that is what I’m doing today.
