Why don’t owls show up in my needs list?
I’m new to ebirds and just checked my “NEEDS” list. I don’t see any owls listed there and I definitely want to be alerted to owl sightings

The reason you do not get alerts on your needs list for Owls is most likely because of eBirds "Sensitive Species" rule where they do not share the locations of birds that should not be disturbed such as some Owls.
