Relevant quote
We wanted to take an evolutionary approach. Brand continuity is important, and there was much we wanted to carry forward from old to new: the wisdom of the owl, the iconic and recognizable mark, and our unique personality.

Owly detail.

This is a good evolution, particularly for Owly. Now a single-color drawing and still recognizable as an owl, it makes for a more convincing and mature icon. The typography is an improvement as well but I wish they had resisted the urge to trim into the "t"s — sure, they mimic the curve of the owl, but they look very weird.
