At dawn every morning this week I have heard an owl just outside our home. I’m wondering why suddenly he (or she?) is hooting; is this a seasonal owl behavior? Never lasting very long, the song is distinctive. I wish I knew what the bird looked like too. Is it a Great Horned Owl? I hear that species is typical for the owls found around here.
But no matter whether the owl be a he or she, a Great Horned Owl or a Barn Owl, large or small, whatever…it makes me smile and wonder at the life out in the darkness.
(No, there is no owl in the photo…too bad, isn’t it?)
