Owl Update

My friend Lee, who did his graduate work on owls, said this is a Screech Owl.  So did some of my Commenters!  Some lore says that the owl is a messenger of death.  Damn!

The owl, night's herald.
William Shakespeare 1564-1616  Venus and Adonis [1593], l. 531

The appearance of an Owl in your home could be a curse on you according to my Pueblo relatives. Beware. The Owl is not what he seems.
