    Default Owl in a tree

    Just out in the back of the condo where I live today, an owl was on the ground..it hopped into a tree and sat there. If this is normal for owls to do this, it's a first for me.20191009_153313.jpg

    I always heard growing up that if you saw an owl in the daytime, someone in your family was fixin to come to the clearing at the end of the path. Prayers sent.
    When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song and die like a hero going home. -Tecumseh-

    that is perfectly normal...the fact that it started out on the ground and then walked 50 feet to the tree you see it sitting in. That through me off...it doesn't take much

    it could be sick...or just full...or what jj said but that's spooky...

    so I'll go with "its just full."

    but it is weird.

    If you took that pic, he is staring straight into your soul brother. You best get to confession stat.

    Perhaps something in your life needs some attention and adjusting. Don't believe everything you see , look within. Spike got dive bombed by a screech owl a couple times just before the wolves visited him. Spirit power is loose and I don't know why.
    Could just be what 2th said though , time to make sure the will is up to date.
