When the owl fluttered away, Emily didn't hesitate. She asked, “What did it say?”
Grandmother didn't answer right away, but clutched her medallion to her chest.
Finally, she said, “Never forget, Emily, the heart knows the way.” That was a long
time ago. She remembered excitedly telling her parents about it, but they had
assured her that what she'd seen was impossible. Owls didn't talk to people. And
Grandmother couldn't talk to owls. They had a hundred scientific reasons why it
was ...

A strategy for decapitating the Soviet leadership in Moscow might enhance
deterrence (Hawk's view) but might produce chaos that might make war
termination impossible if deterrence ever failed (Owl's view). Delegating authority
over battlefield nuclear weapons to field commanders might enhance deterrence
(Hawks) but might also make war termination impossible (Owls). Using nuclear
alerts for political signaling might help establish credibility in a crisis (Hawks), but
it would also ...

Describing the island of the nymph Calypso, Homer (Odyssey, 5(E), 1.66) wrote
about a wood 'wherein birds long of wing were wont to nest, owls and falcons
and sea-crows with chattering tongues, who ply their business on the sea'.
Homer's original is translated with 'owls' and there is indeed a scops owl (e.g.,
Otus scops); the screech-owl (Strix) was once included in this category. It was
said that it could be captured by its tendency to mimic the movements of
someone dancing in ...

Some, like Andy, were in terrific shape for other sports but had lost their timing
and ice sense. It didn't matter. This would be for fun, completely for fun. Muck
came out onto the ice in his old practice clothes, the ratty Windbreaker, the gloves
with the palms half rotted out, the straight stick, the ancient skates. He ran them
through some old drills, then let them scriiniiiage for the remainder of the hour
and, for the first time ever, never once blew his whistle when an Owl tried an

Owls inhabit Southern California mountain habitat “islands,” surrounded by
unsuitable habitat of desert, chaparral, and urban development. Much of this
splintered distribution comes from human activity. Land between the mountain
ranges has been swallowed by urban and suburban development and road
building. Thus, successful movement by owls between separate Southern
California populations has become increasingly difficult, if not impossible.41
Owls' increasing inability to ...

'It'sa strange statement from an owl,' questioned Katy. After all, owls were
supposed to move in the night only. 'Owls don't haveto contend withdemons inour
world,' Billy saidinstantly, defending his position withan argument that would
have been comprehensible enough for most mortal beings. Not Katy though. 'See
, we are not here to avoid the demons,' she argued. 'We are here to meet them.
So wewill take rest now, and will move in the evening. That's the final word,' she
concluded.

The captive Marsh Owl, in addition to being a delightful pet, yielded valuable
information that would have been extremely difficult, if not impossible, to obtain in
the wild because of the difficulty of locating wandering chicks. It was possible to
establish that at the age of a month the back and wings were well feathered, but
otherwise it was still entirely downy; at seven weeks, only the forehead and
underparts were downy, and it was not until ten weeks old that it was fully
feathered.

Neither Miller and Miller (1997) nor Jones and Vallely (2001) listed any owl
species of concern in their respective reports on birds of conservation concern.
While there is no official red data list for Belize ... Although anecdotal evidence
indicates a decline in this species on mainland Belize in the past half century (
see Species Accounts), the incomplete historical record makes it almost
impossible to document a steady, or even significant, decline in numbers
historically. Without sufficient ...

Spike said "Boys I know if not for your warning of the deadly storm in time past,
and you both leading me and my family into the cave out of harm's way we may
not have survived. I'm glad to help you get rid of the owls. Spike was ready to
carry out Ike's plan. For the next few days, as soon as Dragon and his owls
returned to their nesting place and they were fast asleep, Spike and his family
would surround the owls resting place and begin chattering, making it impossible
for the owls to ...
