Born and raised in Cleveland Ohio, USA and still living in the area, I probably became interested in owls when at a very young age, I happend to come upon a baby owl that was trapped in my parents basement.
When I went down the steps one day, it was just sitting on a clothes line, its big eyes staring at me. It frightend me so much that I ran up the stairs screaming!
Long after I had calmed down and the owl had managed to escape, I started to wish the owl would return and be my friend. I would go to the basement each day and search for the friend I wanted, but the owl would never come back. He had gone back to where he had came, where he belonged.
Since those days I've always loved owls and have amassed a very large collection of owl things. Now thanks to the internet I can hope to share my owl collection and my thoughts with others around the globe.
I would like to hear any stories you have about these wonderful creatures. Send me your story or comments and I'll post them too.
