Owl Light back cover This is the sixteenth blog in a series of owl-focused posts to promote Owl Light, my new YA-friendly collection of stories featuring owls. Each post features a mix of owl art, facts, folklore, quotes, and links to owlish sites. If you’re a fan of owls, or know someone whooo is, follow my blog, buy my book, and be kind to these beautiful birds.

Owl art: One of my owls from Owl Light.

Owl fact: Burrowing owls can imitate the rattling sound of an angry rattlesnake. This is a good defense when predators are around.

Owl saying: “The owl thinks her children the fairest” (Danish)

Owl quote: “Moon light and star light, owl and moth light,/ Glow-worm glowlight on a grassblade./ O Light Invisible, we worship Thee!” – TS Elliot

Owl link: Cape Coral Friends of Wildlife sponsor an annual Burrowing Owl Festival (next one in February 2015) and also provide information on their website including a chance to sponsor a Burrowing Owl. In addition, not to be missed is a video of Burrowing Owls.

And, of course, here’s a buy link for Owl Light.  Or buy it from The Owl Pages and help out owls.
