  13. I love owls, they seem so wise. We even had one that lived on top of one of our shopping centers in downtown Helsinki, we called it a "city owl". So cute!

  14. Your Earth owl reminded me of our cute burrowing owls that live in prairie dog holes around here. Owls are awesome, and J K Rowling showed true genius when she wove owls into her books! Take care!
