Owling is just that: go out and look for owls. They’re very hard to spot, even though you’ll hear them often enough, especially in wooded areas. We recently moved to a place that’s basically surrounded by moderate-sized clumps of trees, and more often than not we’ll hear owls hooting after lights out. Or should that be “an owl”, as my dad tells me they are famously solitary animals.
All this to say that when my friend Mike sent me the article by Mira Ptacin from the February 4th New York Times, it struck quite a chord. The amazingly beautiful illustration by Jillian Tamaki was the icing on the cake, and more so.
