Getting ready for bed the other night, I paused beside the open window to listen to an Owl hooting not too far away.
I love to hear their call just as much as I love to listen to the other birds during the day.
It was a little bit before five o’clock in the morning when I heard him again, and I almost jumped out of bed at his sound.
The Robins were beginning their daily welcome to the day when there was a loud screech just outside the window.
The robins all stopped their song as everyone just froze and listened.
Then I hear that familiar hooting again, and I realized what had made that noise.
It was the first time I have heard a screech owl, and it was certainly a shocker.
Within a few minutes the morning returned to normal, the robins singing with the cardinals joining in.
Hope all was well with the owl too!
