Owlivia, a barn owl, is lonely and has no friends. While flying to her home she sees a colony of burrowing owls and wants to make friends. Because she looks different, the other owls do not like her until a scary hawk comes to the burrow and threatens a baby burrowing owl. Owlivia bravely chases him away while the other owls watch in horror. The owls thank Owlivia for her help and they become friends even though she doesn't look like them. The story is built on a theme that sometimes good friends can look different than ourselves and our other friends.
