We live next to an old growth forest that is home to wild flowers and tall poplar trees, snakes, insects, a coyote or two, and all manner of birds including owls. I have been lucky enough to stand in our forest all alone with an owl in a tree just over my head. Just me and the owl, me looking up at him, he looking down at me. It is magical. The owl is such a beautiful bird, and when you get a chance to look into their knowing, round eyes, you understand why the owl is a symbol of wisdom. Here is a list of owl themed books for all the owl lovers out there!
