Fascinating owls

The stories about owls fascinate many people, including me. They are linked to the Greek Goddess Athene and the Goddess Lilith. So much mystery, mythology and symbolism is written about them. They are fascinating birds to say the least.

Going on my first ‘bird watching‘ walk I was ecstatic to see my first tawny frog-mouth sitting in the wild. I was amazed I saw him, he was so camouflaged again the bark and leaves of the tree. We stared at each other for some time. I felt he was playing with me…”Yes, I can stare you down” and yes, he did.
