Still looking for more information on the Evil Eye in Romania I came across the Owl Pages. Fascinating owl beliefs: in Inner Mongolia owls enter the house by night to gather human fingernails and in Ethiopia, a man condemned to death was taken to a table on which an owl was painted, and then expected to take his own life. I'll have to check this, but this site also claims that Transylvanian farmers used to scare away owls by walking around their fields naked.
