It’s a dark autumn day here. With nearly bare trees and leaves on the path, it feels spooky and mysterious. We gaze up and see a large bird swooping down and then landing in the trees high, high up. An owl? We think the wingspan indicates an owl.
Did you know that owls hoot the loudest in autumn? Apparently, everything is about finding and securing new territory. They may also begin to hoot to seek new mates.
I’m excited to listen deeply for the sounds of owls hooting in the woods behind my house.
