Owls aren't commonly seen around my parts here, in North-Texas, in fact I've only seen two in my entire 24-year existence, despite having lived in a somewhat rural area, which makes the whole situation just a little more interesting to me.

This morning, 6:35 AM Central time, I was driving my wife to work, we had just left the house and were about half a mile down the road, we were about to drive by the tiny local cemetery when a huge white owl flew out from somewhere near the cemetery and crossed the road right in front of us. It spooked my wife a bit, she found the situation to be kinda scary. I myself wasn't spooked, just had my eyes glued to it in awe.

Most of the stuff you find when searching around google always says these beautiful birds are messengers of ill omens, however, I'm curious as to what thoughts the kind folk here have to share.

Did I see a messenger of death, something else completely, or just an owl?

Thanks for your time in reading this,

I know it is common for abductees to see owls. Just throwing that out there..not saying you've been abducted at all.

There are tons of raptors in my neck of the woods. I think owls are very cool. One evening while driving with my young nephew, a great horned howl glided right towards the windshield, and then adjusted its flight to sail over the car.

As for omens, they vary from culture to culture. Some say owls portend death, others say they bring wisdom and guidance. I'll opt for the latter!

Saw whet owls are probably my favorites. I'll see one or two once in great while.

I spotted a white barn owl on a fence a few years ago, and I live in the tropics. It seemed out of place and at the time I didn't really know about the spiritual significance, I just stood there admiring it and knowing that I might not see it again.

If u see an owl in the day time its bad luck.

If you see one at night its good luck.

This is what my grandmother full blood Cherokee Indian always told me as a child.

Owls are the bearers of "the evil eye"...
They have the wisdom and to know who is good and who is not.
In their sights is the soul with or without blemish.
The evil eye is their gift...
And they testify it.

I don't think owls signal death. They are observers and are always somewhere watching. Most of the time, you won't even see an owl watching you.



They are a good omen... that is what I believe anyway.

I love owls! There where a lot of them where I grew up and you could hear them every night and see them fly around. I still come across them often.

I recently heard that where I am now, people consider them as harbingers of death (someone you know will soon die).

I am more familiar with the symbolism in mythology, of the owl as the ability to perceive the hidden parts of the truth- that which is unsaid, unacknowledged, or unconscious.

never heard of Owl being a Death Omen

I always heard Owl brings with it unknown or hidden messages/knowledge

I had a daylight sighting of an Elf Owl a day or so before I happened to be at the Scottsdale Air Park where I seen a group of 6 Middle Eastern young men walking briskly on the campus concourse...they were going to flight school I learned later

so I sent a TIP Letter to the Phoenix Office of FBI, Attention: counter terrorism...this was back in Spring 1995

Owl reveals secrets, you just have to be awares instead of shuffling around like a zombie

Dolores Cannon wrote a book called the custodians, she is a regression hypnotherapist who found that when she hypnotizes people they sometimes talk about seeing an owl who actually is an extraterrestrial.

Who knows maybe that's why the guys at bohemian grove do mock human sacrifices before a 40 foot stone owl called Moloch.

Up here in Washington, we had a white owl that would always swoop down and "dive bomb" our windshield, always at night, and it would get really close but never touch the car. It was usually when we were cruisin around drunk and high, and akways on this road thats kind of dangerous. Its in Snohomish where the farmlands are in a place we called The Flats, because the ground is even all the way through, because its farmland I guess. But it has a lot of sharp turns and deeeep ditches on either side. No guardrail.

We were young, dumb, and full of...something. Not everyone in the car could see it every time because of tbe chatter and loud music and testosterone. But somon, usually the driver, would be like "Holy Sh# man did you see that!" After a while it just became a regular thing. Nothing bad ever happened to us, and we are all still alive 15+ years later. We are lucky though, after some of the shenanigans we got into.

Cool story bud, I enjoyed reminiscing.

Simply from personal experience, I don't think they are a bad omen. I see owls several times a year, and I have a pretty good life. I have even had the great grey owls have stare downs with me, they are gorgeous creatures. The white snowy owls are especially beautiful, and powerful. I love the sound their wings make when they are flying through the trees. Sounds like some good luck to me.

The movie: "The Fourth Kind" pretty much sums up the owl/abduction thing. Interesting movie that, and one that helped to get me started down the path I am on today.

I see owls sometimes at night around here. You will hear them at night, more often than seeing them, as there's a lot of light pollution, and often you simply get a glimpse of them flying by. I have always thought owls deserved respect, pretty sure there is a reason for that, just not sure what it is.

I used to wonder, did it think the car was prey? But no way... they can see in the dark very well and they know the difference between a mouse and a car! Which means, that owl knew exactly what it was doing and had a reason for it. Spooky man... What do they know, that we do not know?? Can their eyes see our aura? Or do they just have fun like cats do kinda, and they just do it because they can?

Where I grew up we had the occasional Screech Owl fly over head and screeeechhh! in the night. Surely sent shivers up ones spine.

I don't know abbot the spirit thing but Baaad omen to small furry critters that think they are safe coming out at night.
They have night vision, float silently, descending on their prey in the dark with stealth and precision. Their talons grip like a vice and their beak tears a deathblow.

I used to sleep in a small field near where I worked. At night on my back I looked up at the stars and would see the white ghosty shapes floating silently (except for that screech). I knew what they were and also knew they were there for the jack rabbits that milled about in that field just near and after dark.

Sometimes the sudden screaming of luckless Jack Rabbits would pierce the night as they were pounced upon and carried off still alive by the owls.

The awful sounds of their pitiful wailing agony streamed off into the distance as they were carried off to feed the young.

I was glad when I moved away from there. By the way, that hill and valley were owned by a local Native American old man that refused to sell his parcel to the developers for years. I used to see Red Fox, Quail and coyotes there. One of the last org. wild areas in all of Silicon Valley proper. My spirit soars whenever I get a chance to witness wildlife.

Those long time residents of the South Bay might know of the place I am referring to.
