The Older I Get...

...the more I prefer the color brown to the color white, and the sound of rain to the silence of snow. Incidentally, I just heard my first owl of the year. I don't know if the extreme cold would delay mating season any or not.

I see what you mean, rain is good well as long as it is about 40 degrees.

What does an owl sound like?

Valid point, SF; freezing rain isn't so good.

It depends on the variety of owl, and the area, Pumice. You should be able to google "owl sounds" or something, and find audio clips of them. If you search for "owl calls," you'll probably get mostly turkey-hunting calls designed to get toms to shock-gobble.

I agree, Mh; I've enjoyed it!
