Owls in Norse Mythology

Owls have always scared and fascinated me for as long as I can remember.
Mostly because they always give me a shock when I hear them at night, not expecting to hear one.
There is an owl that sits in the tree outside my bedroom at happily hoots away at 3 in the morning.
I know they are associated with wisdom and messages, and the Otherworld. But in Norse Mythology, there seems to be very little on owls. Mostly which God they represent.
One would think Frigga, as she is the Goddess of Wisdom and associated with Seidr.
Does anyone know which God owls would represent?

Except in Hellenic religion, owls seem to be regarded as birds of ill-omen throughout the world. Personally, I envy you: all I get outside my window are pigeons. I can't trace anything about Norse owls, but this site is nice:

And have you read Susanna Clarke's "The Ladies of Grace Adieu"?

Since we have fairly little to go on in the way of facts concerning norse religion and spirituality (compared to many other religions at least) I would suggest doing research on what kinds of birds/owls live in indigenous lands of Scandinavia and Iceland that might end up associated with the gods. Animals tie in greatly to the shamanistic/seidr aspects of Scandinavian myth and religion so you could be on to something here :)

Not sure of any association with gods, but I've always loved owls. Living in the woods in Northern Michigan I get to hear quite a few. Probably one night a week.

Ayahuasca is a psychoactive plant brew known throughout the Amazon for its powerful healing and visionary properties. Ayahuasca has been used for millennia by South American shamans to divine the future, journey to the spirit world, and induce healing. The great Owl guards the shamans while they are curing. Owl medicine includes prophecy, wisdom, stealth, silence, intuition, clairvoyance, clairaudience, shapeshifting, and keen vision that can pierce all illusion. Call upon Owl to unmask and see what is truly beneath the surface - https://dmt.vision/gallery/ - what is hidden or in the shadows. Owl is a messenger of omens who will call out to let all share in its vision.
