The owl is a symbol for being wise, patient, and for also having good eyesight. In other words it might be a combination of the turtle and the eagle as far as dream meanings are concerned. Like the eagle, the owl is able to spot out prey from miles away, but what makes it even cooler is that it can also spot it from the same distance in the middle of the night because of its nocturnal vision capabilities. Owls are also known for being very wise and seemingly being quite old. If you have a dream in which you see a dead owl it could mean that you feel as if your intelligence is dying out. As hard as this might be to believe, this is a common fear. Tell someone to tell you something that they said 3 days ago and they canвЂ™t remember so all of the sudden they start thinking that they canвЂ™t remember anything and they feel like their memory is worthless. ItвЂ™s a common feeling but not a common ailment unless you hit your head hard 3 times daily. DonвЂ™t worry; you have nothing to worry about yet. A dream of a dead owl usually means that you feel like your faculties are decreasing everywhere or youвЂ™re not the man you used to be. This is mostly due to old age. Relax though, you can still come out on top and conquer.
