Evocative eight notes of the Barred Owl as he seeks,
A female he will partake in a duet with for weeks,
In the early fall at dusk, his longing hoot seems to peak.
Who cooks for you, who cooks for you is his retold song,
As he waits and dreams, a willful female will come along.
I bow my head and give thanks for my ability to hear,
The warbling of joy from all the birds that reach my ear.

I always wondered why I got hungry when I heard his call 🤓
Beautiful song it sings, and shared lovingly and beautifully
There is one in our backyard that asks that question every night right now. Hehe. Thanks for reading and commenting. I appreciate it so much. Love ❤️ J
Nature is such an inspiration, and such a clear reflection of God. <3
It is indeed my dear friend. Thank you so much for reading and your sweet comment Anna. I am sending you my love. My heart is hurting for you especially this week. Yet we just read your last post together and your strength is astonishing. What a great post and so informative for people who don’t understand abuse or ACOA victims. ❤️❤️❤️❤️
