In ancient Greece and Rome, Strix was a bird of ill omen fed on the flesh and blood of humans. Its name is Greek in origin and means "owl", and the appearance and calls of owls inspired ancient ideas of owls as blood-drinking birds.
"Witches that transform into birds at night and drink the blood of children. During the day they look like normal human women. Their name comes from the Roman word for owl. The Romans believed that owls sucked the blood of infants, and eventually the story evolved into that of the witches."
