How could I not share some of my owl photos with you here?
These birds are so magnificent, and the Owl Trust at Muncaster Castle in Cumbria was wonderful. It is no wonder that for millennia humans have believed in the magical power of owls . . . who could have invented an animal that can turn its head 180 degrees or hear a mouse twitch 100 yards away or mate for life with one partner.
Some owls keep pet snakes in their nests to help clean out insects and larvae. Yes, owls keep pets.
"If you take any activity, any art, any discipline, any skill, take it and push it as far as it will go, push it beyond where it has ever been before, push it to the wildest edge of edges, then you force it into the realm of magic." --Tom Robbins
