“Throughout my life, the few times that I have seen a barn owl it has had an almost spiritual, unexpected quality. In each case, I have been prowling quietly in or near old buildings. Feeling a bit like an intruder, I have been startled by the silent flapping of the barn owl’s wings.”

Perhaps because of my mood or perhaps because of the surprising paleness of the bird and fleeting glimpse, the thought of a ghost would come to mind. Although I did not see this exact view of the owl through the church door, I did see him in the vicinity several times. And I did have that awesome feeling as I crept alone through the ancient church.”
