I 've been a little envious of all the neat critters kel has at her I was thrilled when this Long-eared Owl showed up in my backyard. I don't know how long she had been watching me play with Penelope, but she didn't seem at all bothered by us.
While trying to identify this beauty, I came across some Native American legends about the owl--and I'm pretty happy about being visited by her. May your way, and mine, be illuminated as changes take place.

I miss hearing them at night, some nights I long for the woods.

Great gift to be visited but some of the Native Americans wouls be afraid of this visiter.

Yes, I am blessed beyond measure--and some Native Americans would be afraid. I believe that our Creator works in many, many ways and that His Messengers appear in many ways as well. This Messenger reminds me of the peaceful, powerful wisdom that we obtain through our faith and trust.
