According to Deane Lewis in her article, "World Owl Mythology," some cultures view owls as good luck (Samoans, Hawaiian, Incan, and more) and others view it as associated with negative things, perhaps in large part to it being a nocturnal bird. The Celts and old Mexican mythology believed owls were associated with the underworld. In Afghanistan, the Owl has a promethean quality where it gives fire to mortals, and in return mankind gives the owl his feathers; in Borneo, the owl tells secrets to people, and is treated in a similar way as the Greek legendary characters Prometheus and Pandora. There are cultures that associate owls with wizards and witches (several African cultures, Swedish, and more). You can check it out on owlpages.com.
