Whoo... Whoo...

Whoo... Whoo...

"What's that?" Asked the little boy hugging his mommy's leg and hiding his face. "I am sacred."

Mommy aimed her light into the tree. "Look Sweetheart," she said softly, "it's an owl calling to his owl friends."

A few seconds later, another owl answered.

Whoo... Whoo...

Whoo... Whoo...

The little boy smiled up at his mommy. "Owls are friendly creatures. I am not scared of them."
