Those are beautiful and very much like mine! Never heard the term Twit Twoo, it just means owl I think? Here is another gorgeous one.

There are 4 "Twit Twoo"s, all named after the Beatles, in 4 slightly different shapes, George, John, Ringo and "the other one". ;)

Over this side of the pond there is a sort of convention that an owl says; "twit twoo", but it's wrong.
It takes two owls.
One says; "twit", it's mate replies "twoo".  ;D
