I've also heard that an owl flying over a house is a harbinger of death. It's probably only a superstition, but I've never been comfortable with the family of them that live in one of the tall pines in my front yard:........:uhoh21:
Ahhh, perhaps we should steer clear of superstitions. My Irish mother had enough to make me shudder at least once a day. She told me that if a wild bird gets into your house and is flying around, it means a death.
Last month, I heard this fluttering sound and then a bump. OMG! It was the smallest, most adorable birdie you'd ever want to see. My dd and her bf also had a bird in their house. I keep telling myself this is simply a silly superstition - and I keep trying to believe that.
Now, a family of owls in your front yard? And hoping they don't fly over your home? Please feel free to join me. "It is only a silly superstition", "It is only a silly superstition", ...............
And, BSNtobe2009, I love the poem 'The Raven'. Actually tried to memorize it in high school and almost did it. Not quite, but almost.
With my friend, she was driving on a busy road and the crows stayed only around her car. Which she naturally found pretty disconcerting.
So, is it just a myth?? Anyone know any more about this???
