I love serendipitous moments. At 4:00 AM this morning I woke, which is not unusual, but today was different. In lying there pondering life, I was blessed to be serenaded by a great horned owl. The sound was distinct. I am not an expert on owl sounds, but after much research on owls, owl demography, and sounds, I concluded that what I heard was a great horned owl. It was a gift that lasted for almost a half hour.
I have included a short YouTube video for you to hear what I heard this morning…enjoy…I know I did.
