It turns out owls can do a lot more than just sit around and look wise and criticize Freddy the Pig’s poetry. Before youtube came along, who knew owls could make such good pets?
I remember the first time I saw an owl. My friend and I were walking in the woods, I guess I was about six years old, when we disturbed the world’s most enormous owl, who flapped his wings with a sound of thunder and took off. Man! To this day I’m sure that bird was bigger than I was. One of those memories you just don’t forget, ever.
