Swear I could hear its wings beating the wind as it passed over .
I doubt you heard it. Just your imagination. Owls hunt in darkness by listening for the tiny footsteps of prey. If their wings made any noise it would first startle the prey and second overstimulate their hearing. Owl feathers have fringes all along each side which cushion the rubbing of the feathers as they fly and absorb any friction produced sounds.http://www.owlpages.com/owls/articles.php?a=7Patrick HayesFremont CA
Dusty: Gotta remember, owls are crepuscular birds. Personally, I've never had a close encounter with an owl on a bike. Many, many close calls with big vultures in the south and west. Probably the worst bird I've ever tangled with is my wife's talking African Grey parrot. She is a sarcastic little beast, with a sick sense of humor. You can tell pretty quickly that birds are basically dinosaurs. A T-Rex would have the same kind of humor.
