The Blind Owls are a 4-piece Rock n' Roll band from Corpus Christi, Texas. Translations. The Blind Owl was translated into French by Roger Lescot during World War II, apparently with Hedayat's knowledge and approval, and published as La Chouette Aveugle (), and later by Pasteur Vallery Radot, a member of the French Academy. The book was well received in the French literary circles. In Germany, two translations appeared in the early : Sadegh Hedayat.

  People have associated owls with wisdom since before recorded history. Curiosly, this belief evolved separately in several different cultures. Owls, as night birds, are shrouded in mystery and are apt to become depositories for superstitions, just. Owls, like most birds or prey, have excellent vision. Seeing as how owls are nocturnal, they have particularly good night vision, estimated to be up to times more powerful than a human’s. But with this amazing eyesight, can they also see in color? The answer is that owls are indeed color blind, as are most other nocturnal birds.

The truth however, is that bats are not naturally blind. All bats can see, except those with eye defects. Although all bats are blind at the time of their birth, they begin to see soon after. Young bats begin to see seven to nine days after birth. Their eyes are usually small and not as well developed as those of other nocturnal creatures.
