Potter, Burrowing Owl: Rotating Head

What's front or back when your head rotates like this? 

There is something eerie about a creature like Potter, the Burrowing Owl, whose head can rotate 270 degrees, so that he stares at you like this, body aiming forward, face back.

For Potter's full bouquet, see below, Burrowing Owl Floral Arrangement. (Try doing it with your head facing backwards...)

What is this? A somewhat-tame burrowing owl — he's being imprinted to help educate people about the issues his at-risk species faces. 
Location: Saskatchewan Burrowing Owl Interpretive Centre, Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan.
