Owls are wonderful birds to watch....they can get pretty big and are very graceful. When I was a teenager, we moved from Point Loma (in San Diego) out to the country (Lakeside) about 40 miles from San Diego. My Dad bought a 10 acre property with a huge ranch home, swimming pool and horse corrals. It was a dream to live there for an animal lover. We had deer in our valley, coyotes, a rare mountain lion, road runners, pheasants, owls, hawks, bats, and rattle snakes (I know how to use a hoe!!! LOL).

We had a pair of huge white owls that lived in one of the big oak trees on the property. It was eerie to see them come out a night cause they were huge and white and would fly up around the pool. Lots of time me and my sister and my Mom would be swimming at night and the owls would be swooping around. The scary times were when the bats swooped down into the pool for a drink and we were swimming.

Owls are inquisitive and I think they must live close to you and find your yard interesting. Maybe they appreciate your bringing the spirit out in those logs. You should feel honored that they visit you, they should bring you good luck. Here is a nice article about animal totems and the messenger spirit of owls.

Thanks for posting the tiki that shared your owl visit.

Thanks for the link...Benzart mentioned that Seminoles found the Owl Spirit not really lucky...and living, as we both do, in Florida, it is another thought to ponder!

On another note, Bay Park Buzzy! How's your room mate?

Thanks and Mahalo to all,

After I gave him a couple of Mai Tais, he seemed to be down with the whole tiki thing



He just ordered a pendant from me. He wants to look like a tiki guy too. He's also looking to trade his stash of dead mice for the cocojoe's owl ashtray. PM me if any of you want me to broker the deal for you...

Buzzy Out!

How is it that this thread has existed as long as it has without some old-timer reminding the newbs about this thread:

http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=8104&forum=6

Which in turn lead to this one:

it's great that you helped that owl. but I'd be careful about who knows about it. having that owl could cost you a steep penalty, and lots of legal trouble.

Perhaps Owls like tikis too. I Certainly Love this one and the eyes are really cool (on the tiki!) Well the Owls eyes are too.
