Owl of Cwn Cawlwyd

One of the oldest animals in the world, which conversed with Gwrhyr the Interpreter.

The expedition mounted by Culhwch had been taken to the owl by the Stag of Rhedynfrc, an animal slightly younger than the owl, which, in turn took the group on to question the Eagle of Gwernaby.
