Owls Only Visit Boulder on Samhain

On October 31st, 2005, Tam and I saw My Morning Jacket at the Fox Theatre in Boulder. While waiting for the doors to open, we looked across the street and saw an owl on top of a building. The band was touring for their new album Z which features owls on the cover. They had a few stuffed owls on stage, too.

This year, DeVotchKa played at the Boulder Theater on Halloween and Day of the Dead. I wanted to go to the former, but tickets were sold out, so I went tonight. After the show, I stood outside the parking garage for a minute to enjoy the warm night air. Suddenly, an owl swooped down and landed on top of the building across the street. It sat for a minute or two before flying away.

WHO were you this year?

I went to the Devotchka concert, actually. It was really amazing, I'm sorry you wanted to go but couldn't.

but we have several resident owls out here in "Erie" (perhaps more accurately Frederick, if signage is to be believed, mail delivery works either way), including a great horned owl whose body seems to be about 24" tall with about 6' wingspan, that hangs out in the walnut tree...

By the way, anybody want some black walnuts?
