A little owl

 

A wise owl sat on the oak

The more he saw…the less he spoke

The less he spoke…the more he heard..

Why aren't we like the old wise bird..????

A nursery rhyme…which I learnt…& later read it out to my daughter too….

Like the other birds…we don't get to see a owl often…it is a rare sighting…mainly because it is shy ,camouflage itself well,also it is nocturnal…

Or if even it is seen we don't watch ,because of some silly superstitions…

But…I love owls…to me it is the most unconventional ,good looking bird..I have seen many times. ..but..while birding…3 days had the chance to photograph the bird…to my heart content….here is a photo blog

 

A hole…in a water sprinkler…is his abode…

 

It was quite wary..

 

Watches us…

 

Turns its face off…disinterested in us

 

Why are they looking at me..?….it must be wondering

 

Thinking….confused…

By then…vijay decides to get down …and go near for a good shot…

 

His round yellow eyes…gets rounder…yellower…scared perhaps that he was getting near

 

As vijay gets near…he starts to go deep into pipe…& then not seen

We leave the place..drive around for some time..& get back to same place…

 

It was back…this time a little bolder gaze..!

 

It was like…u stare at me…&.. I stare at you back..!!!

 

Then got into a peek a boo mood…!!!!…

 

I thought…it was high time we stop troubling the bird…so having said good bye …we left…

The little owl …must have sighed with relief…!!!

As we drove back…I wondered why an owl is called a bad omen..!?

For me…it is the most unconventionally …good looking bird…

Our home is full of things with owl motifs…

I end this with a quote from…Mehmet Murat Ilden

The inauspiciousness of the owl …is nothing… But the inauspiciousness of the man's thinking…!!!!!
