Musings Of A Wise Old Owl

Mused the owl roosting on a pine tree shoot, "My colleagues think I'm not very astute, But I wisely perch in pines, Not on hot transmission lines! If they singe their butts I don't give a hoot!"

I have never seen an owl perched up on those power lines, as other birds do. They really are wise ones!.... A great write, Robert! Congrats on your win!

Cute one..Maybe his colleagues just love to get a charge out of life everyday..Thanks for stopping by..I don't think I have ever seen a Falcon here except one I saw in a caged in area in a man's front yard..We have red tail hawk here..Their are two families of them on our road..I see them out occasionally either perched or flying over a field..There are suppose to be Southern Bald Eagles here but I have never seen one..Thanks again..Sara

Bravo!! If I were the astute owl, I wouldn't give a hoot either. Got a great laugh from your limerick. I see you have another new one, so I'll check it out. Awesome, my friend. Love, Carolyn
