Oh, I can't stress this enough.....I love Owls! Those lucky people who were able to handle, pet and care for them....I'm
slightly envious.

They are what they are. People just try to twist them to what they (the people) think the owls should be.


Nature isn't always pretty.


I like owls too. Just not as much as hippos.

People are negative about owls? That's not wise.

They're doing what owls are meant to do.

I was quoting The X Files...

My goodness, I'd hate to have hippos silently flying through the pine trees, hooting...catching mice and bunnies...

I live in Toronto, and recently we have had a number of Arctic Owls appear around here. Very distinctive appearance, and huge in size. They have been sighted as far south as Bermuda. That was a real surprise. Imagine a artic bird, on a semi tropical island, way out in the Atlantic ?
