This morning, before the sun had even thought about coming up, my son and I were standing at the bus stop. As we stood, we heard an interesting sound: Who. . . Who. . . Who,Who,Who,Whoooo!
"An owl!" I said.
Bubba grinned. "Can I try talking to it?"
"Sure, Bubba. Go ahead."
He raised his head and called, "Who. . . Who. . .Who, Who,Who,Whooo!"
He listened. No response. "Never mind. I don't speak owl," he said.
No sooner were the words out of his mouth, when the owl called back, "Who. . .Who. . .Who, Who,Who, Whoooo!"
Bubba was thrilled. He called, again, and the owl responded. The two carried on their conversation until the bus came.
"I like owls," Bubba said as he got on the bus. "They're really smart. That one knew exactly what I was saying!"
A regular night err umm morning owlReplyDelete
I recall when I resided in Spain I held an owl to overcome my fear of big birds. Pleased the owl answered your son. Lovely story.ReplyDelete
Owls are pretty cool.Delete
If only he knew what he was saying! Maybe he just proposed...?ReplyDelete
Haha! Now I'll have an owl for a daughter-in-law. ;0)Delete

It sounds like he has a special way with animals!ReplyDelete
He has a special way, period!Delete
That owl may stalk him nowReplyDelete
That's a scary thought.Delete
I sit out back at night sometimes and do that with an owl. I get a hoot out of it. ;)ReplyDelete
Meeting with owl in my culture is considered as bad omen.ReplyDelete
Is that right? Well, then I am glad I live over here, where owls are thought to be pretty cool.Delete
Sounds like Bubba has a way with the animals. :)ReplyDelete
He has a way with everything!Delete
That Bubba of yours, Sherry, is so adorable. So happy the "owl" encouraged him. Awesome story! :-)ReplyDelete
Have you ever read the book, Owl Moon by Jane Yolen? This reminded me of that story.Delete
He kills me, but I think he's right. Owls and kids can communicate. A shame we lose that when we grow up.ReplyDelete
Yes, to be a kid, again!Delete
Hello greetings and good wishes.ReplyDelete
Your son is fantastic. No grown up person will dare do it. This is the beauty about children. They are not frightened of making mistakes. They always make the effort, they are spontaneous and they surprise us many times doing things which we thought cannot be done in our own wisdom.
You and your son, no doubt, had a wonderful time. Both of you will remember this for a long to time to come I hope the owl is there every time your son is at the bus stop.
I love the spontaneity of kids. It encourages my own spontaneity.Delete
Now Bubba can start communicating with all creatures.ReplyDelete
Love what Joseph said.
As long as he doesn't have bears, mountain lions, and coyotes following us, I don't mind.Delete
I used to do that with cats. At some point, my meows were so good, people thought it was a cat.ReplyDelete
Haha! Then you were a real cat lady!Delete
Hahaha. Bubba really cracks me up. Children and animals are the cutest.ReplyDelete
They certainly are!Delete
Such a cute owl story, Sherry!ReplyDelete
I thought it was cute, too.Delete
Aw, this is way too cute! Owls are the best... :)ReplyDelete
I think owls are very cool!Delete
I wish I could speak owl! :)ReplyDelete
Bubba made it seem pretty easy.Delete
Maybe Bubba can teach owl as a second language to the rest of us! :)ReplyDelete
Haha! Maybe they'll even offer it in school.Delete
It must have been fun watching the owl language exchange between them. It's not everyday we see owls here.ReplyDelete
I've heard the owl before, but it's not an every day occurrence.Delete
It’s such a great post! Awesome! I like your style of writing and your photos!ReplyDelete
I know how much time it requires to keep updating your blog, but don’t stop doing it!)
Thanks for visiting.Delete
Aww! That's so adorable! Owls are definitely smart.ReplyDelete
At least they seem that way!Delete
