The Screech Owl

A few katydids have returned. A very few.

Shortly after dusk I could hear the screech owl quite easily. It made more wonder whether it had been there all along - drowned out by the bugs.

The screech owl makes me remember being a boy on Vernon Drive in Augusta, Ga., and having a whippoorwill in the woods right behind my house. I used to go out the side door where my bedroom (a closed in carport) opened to the outside and sit in the grass at night and listen to it...
