    "Civetta" and "Gufo" both mean :"Owl"

    "Lepre" means "Hare" and "Coniglio" means "Rabbit".

    "IL" and "LA" are just the masculine and feminine versions of the article "The".

    Lepre is a hare.

    Coniglio is a rabbit.

    Gufo is the long eared owl (asio otis), It is bigger than a civetta.

    Civetta is the little owl (athene noctua).

    you can tell them apart at night because they make different sounds.
