For the last couple of nights the owls have been especially talkative. There must be quite a gaggle of them out there judging by the conversation. Whowhohawho- who-who. Is it a question? Is it a comment? All of them are asking or saying pretty much the same thing but the tone is comforting and supportive and not threatening. If you go outside and stand in the trees you can sometimes feel them soar by on their silent wings and on rare occasions you can catch a glimpse of one sitting quietly and waiting for some small creature to make the mistake of becoming visible. Somehow it is very comforting to lay down to sleep with the owls chatting outside your window.
