Someone Sent An Owl

Whooo dares click to enlarge me?


We’ve been seeing a lot of owls lately. This barred owl was intent on lunch when we happened upon it on a recent Saturday along Highway 11.

According to Medicine Cards, by Jamie Sams and David Carson, St. Martin’s Press (1988 & 1999) owls are a symbol of wisdom in many cultures. In ancient Greece, Athena, the Goddess of Wisdom, had one for a companion. Owls aid us in seeing the truth and we should pay attention to signals and omens when we see them.

We are paying attention, but what is the message?

Cool! The Bag Lady hasn't seen any owls lately - she could use one or two, if they bring wisdom...

Hello dfBag Lady. Owls are cool. Wisdom aside, I always consider it a treat to see them.

df Leah,

So, I took the dare, clicked to enlarge the owl's picture and lost your entire blog!

Today's lesson in wisdom--naver take a dare from an owl. He's wiser than I am!!

I like Owls and what a great picture Leah. How lucky you were to have him face you like that.

Leah J.Utas said...

Thanks, Reb. It was turning a great deal as it listened.

Love the pic but after Terrie's experience, I won't risk enlarging. Our NZ owl is a nocturnal creature that is hardly ever seen. I hear them occasionally on a bush covered mountain nearby at night - although I don't spend very much time on bush covered mountains at night!

Hello Dawn. It's so good to see you.

Owls are supposed to be nocturnal here, too. They'll come out on the gloomier days as well as summer evenings.
