Allegedly a True Owl Story Told to Will by Christine GreenKissing Owls Pictures

Each evening bird lover Tom Rowe stood in his backyard in Devon, England, hooting like an owl - and one night, an owl called back to him. For a year, the man and his feathered friend hooted back and forth.  Rowe even kept a log of the 'conversation.' Just as Rowe thought he was on the verge of a breakthrough in inter-species communication, his wife had a chat with next door neighbour, Nancy Hollis. 'My husband spends his nights ... calling out to owls,' laughed Mrs. Rowe. 'That's odd,' Mrs. Hollis replied. 'So does my John.' Then it dawned on them!

The Owl and the Pussycat Poem by Edward Lear

The Owl and the Pussycat went to sea In a beautiful pea-green boat, They took some honey, and plenty of money, Wrapped up in a five pound note. The Owl looked up to the stars above, And sang to a small guitar, "O lovely Pussy! O Pussy, my love, What a beautiful Pussy you are, You are, You are, What a beautiful Pussy you are." Pussy said to the Owl "You elegant fowl, How charmingly sweet you sing. O let us be married, too long we have tarried; But what shall we do for a ring?" They sailed away, for a year and a day, To the land where the Bong-tree grows, And there in a wood a Piggy-wig stood With a ring at the end of his nose, His nose, His nose, With a ring at the end of his nose. "Dear Pig, are you willing to sell for one shilling your ring?" Said the Piggy, "I will" So they took it away, and were married next day By the Turkey who lives on the hill. They dined on mince, and slices of quince, Which they ate with a runcible spoon. And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand. They danced by the light of the moon, The moon, The moon, They danced by the light of the moon.

Funny, Laid Back Tawny Owl - Thinks He's HumanFunny Owls Pictures

Treacle the owl goes for a bike ride Apparently hand reared owls can think that they are, in fact, human. Treacle, a six year old tawny owl brought up by his keeper, Jenny Smith in Eccleshall, Staffordshire, UK, is one such bird. Jenny has let Will and Guy know that because he is a rather lazy and laid back owl she allowed him to ride on the handlebars of her bike. M/S Smith commented, 'I think Treacle likes being on the bike because owls are notoriously lazy. So this way he doesn't have to do any exercise and he can sit around and look at his surrounding area to see what's going on. We do fly him and he does enjoy flying but I suppose the bike feels like he's flying but without putting in the effort.' We have discovered that the Gentleshaw Wildlife Centre, where Treacle lives, also has a monkey that likes scribbling and a hawk that only likes women.
