In deserted places

August 28, 2021

Owls hunt throughout the night

They are quite specialized predators, having eyes and ears that are designed for hunting and unique feathers that enable them to fly almost silently. 

The elf owl is a small grayish-brown bird about the size of a sparrow, it is the world’s lightest and smallest owl. These nocturnal birds are often heard hooting out to their mates in the middle of the night from the treetops, or from the forested areas.

And surely, surely

the screeching owl, with its monogamous mating habits

surely it must have a place in the choir.

  1. They are wonderful. When we were children we would see them perched on the electricity wires next to our home at night.
    Mostly the grey ones.
    They were a sight to behold.
    Now I haven’t seen them in years.
    Guess the world doesn’t need their wisdom anymore
