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.

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.

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. 



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.

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.

    • Hello. Thanks for reaching out.

      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.

    • Thanks for reaching out!

      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!

  4. My husband and I, both saw an owl during the day. It felt so surreal. Later that evening, we experienced an enlightening event that changed our perspectives.

  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.
