What?? No way!  There are all kinds of things about the owls that
aren't what they seem!  This is an absurd jump of logic!
If you believe that L.A. times article, than say so.  Don't
reinterpret every new piece of evidence to insist that it proves
this conclusion, when it does not.  This is not well thought out.

There are many things about the owls that aren't what they seem.
To me we already have our answer what the giant is reffering to,
and that is that the owls are associated with BOB somehow.  
period! Ta da! No theories are demonstrated with it! (though they
might turn out to be true.)

Other things about owls and BOB that aren't what they seem include that
BOB appears as simply human in coops vision, but he is not.  There's 
more to him, perhaps he's a demon, vampire, spirit, whatever.
His powers *might* include invisibility, mind control, 
mind reading, jumping through portals that take him to and from strange 
places.  He able to conceal his true identity to Laura for 6+ years,
and TP viewers forever. :)  
There is so much about BOB that isn't what it seems,
that it is ridiculous to think "the owls are not what they seem"
means that BOB isn't Laura's killer.  I don't pretend to understand
what really happened in that train car, you shouldn't either. :)
I am on a nightmare of a terminal, apologies to all.
