    An Encounter

    Several years ago I was driving down this country road and I had to slam on my brakes when an owl landed right in front of my car.  We looked at each other for a few seconds and he flew away.  I thought it was strange to see one in the day time.  I've had a thing...

    The Only Birds I Love

    I'm actually terrified of birds and I don't even know why. It's something about the way they watch you as though they're planning something, I think. And the way their heads bob. And those sharp beaks that could easily poke your eye out. Okay, they're just vile, evil, demonic...

    Favorite Animal

    The owl is a magnificent bird of prey. I have loved owls for as long as I can remember. I collect owl things, mostly cups and figurines. I have a neat collection so far.

    A Dream I Once Had

    When I was a teenager, I had a dream I will never forget.It was an epic story about owls and their lives... sort of an 'Animal Farm' thing. I remember a pub the owls went to called 'Owl Palace' ... it had a green sign out front with a moon on it.

    Owls Are Amazing

    I love owls 'cause I think they're very graceful creatures, cute, they have the most expressive eyes but mysterious at the same time. I own many pretty owl things, from necklaces to toothbrush holder. I don't know if in my country it's legally permitted to have an owl 'cause if...

    The owl may be one of my totem animals ~ in fact, I am fairly certain it is.  Years ago, I had a friend that was Wiccan and he was called "Brother Owl" by his closest friends.  He read Tarot cards in our friend's bar, out on the patio.  He used to...

    Owls are and always will be my favourite animal.

    They're so perfect, I love their noise, their eyes, the colours, the way they spin their heads around. I think they're straight up the cutest ever!
