Ok I think this is the right forum to put this because I believe it is a paranormal issue. I live on about 6 acres and for the last 4 or 5 nights and evenings I have an Owl following me. I know this sounds stupid but when I walk outside wherever I am the Owl will fly a few inches over my . then land and screach at me. Their are 4 other people who live here and none of them have the problems but see and hear the owl when I am outside. My questions are what is it trying to tell me? How do I figure it out? I have read some things that owls can communicate with spirits or that they are spirits. I have also read that they can kind of warn you of tragic situations. This is the reason I put this in the paranormal thread. Do Owls have a link to the dead. Do they warn us of things or why the hell is he driving me crazy... thanks

Is it breeding season? Are you maybe getting near a nest?

Just trying to rule out the mundane.

I thought the same thing at first . I even thought maybe I am near its nest but it doen not matter where I am on the property or what door I go out of it is waiting for me once the sun goes down. I even went to a convienence store last night about a half mile from the house and swear the same owl was yelling at me

You should get this stuff on video or at least pictures. I'd be interested to see, I love owls. Used to have one that came to my yard often but I haven't seen him in a few months.

I live in Oklahoma and all the old indian ladys always tell you the owl means death. Take it for what you will man.

I've heard it said that owls are messengers of death. That if you hear an owl it means someone is going to die.

When I was about sixteen, I heard an owl. No one died


Owls have always been associated with wisdom (see the goddess Athena) perhaps because of their amazingly keen night vision, their hearing, or even the ability to fly silently. It is said that those with owl totem/medicine can see into the souls of others and are rarely if ever deceived.

Whether the bird is acting out of an instinctive behavior or not, you can possibly learn from the message. Someone may be trying to deceive you. No need to be paranoid, but watchful never hurt anyone that I know of.

Whatever you do, don't let it indoors with you. That will signal someone close to you will die. The 3 instances in my life a bird has flown indoors with me (has to be a residence, not a mall or stadium), it has signalled the death of someone in my life within the following 24 hours.

As for it following you, maybe it's your new or temporary totem animal.

Totem Animals


It has great intuition: it is the totem of psychics and clairvoyants. It has the courage to follow its instincts. Owl's medicine includes seeing behind masks, silent and swift movement, keen sight, messenger of secrets and omens, shape-shifting, link between the dark, unseen world and the world of light, comfort with shadow self, moon power, freedom.


Mine are the Magpie and the Praying Mantis.

Don't convince yourself of that please. If you believe that it's more likely to come to pass. .

I was just gonna say this same thing. A memeber of my family works at a certain hospital, and after the death of a native lady, went outside for a smoke to find many owls in the surrounding woods.
I'd never seen an owl there my entire 14 yrs.

like the man said, take it for what you will.
i live in bc btw.

It could be any number of things. The soap you use, detergant in your clothes, cologne, shampoo or just your natural sent.

I'm betting there is more then one owl, they do look similar and your imagination has gotten the better of you. Now you are looking for that owl and each time you see one you think its the same one.

Until you figure it out, listen to the Henry ROllins song "I'm Being Followed," it will cheer you up!

It is also believed that the owl can be warning you that someone is trying to deceive you...to give you the power to see through the deception... does that help?

I gotta get on board with Mr. Headshot (us Okies stick together!) My mom always told me about the night her mom died, she heard a screech owl in the woods... Also it's an old Indian legend. I thought it was crap until the night before my grandfather died I heard one myself. The night my mom died I walked outside the nursing home to smoke and sure as # I heard another screech owl.

Could just be superstition, but its a damn odd occurrence. I don't think it means anything to you, but possibly family or friends.

Stay safe brother

I once stepped out of the computer room in my apartment to find an intact, severed leg of an common house sparrow that was enjoying the seeds I had put out for them on the balcony laying on the carpet with my cat innocently sleeping about two meters away.

It apparently came into my apartment through the open window.

Somehow, in the span of about five minutes, my cat caught and consumed the whole bird except the right leg


Nobody in close to me died, and it was a few weeks ago

if its any consolation, I have a cardinal that keeps trying to peck its way inside my office. If I see them congregate like in The Birds the i might start to worry

LOL! Here comes a couple jokes...

Do you have a "Rat's Tail"?

Maybe that's not a cellphone squeaking in your pants!

Maybe he just wants to know "whooo!" you are!

(drums)"Badum Ching!"(/drums)

Is your cat big?

A few weeks ago my three cats decided that they wanted to play with a baby sparrow. And by play I do mean "play." They would sit there and chase it, or they'd hold it for a second, then let it go, then catch it and repeat the entire process all over again. Of course I intervened, and made sure it was okay. By the third time, the poor thing was obviously hurt, and, neither seeing or hearing momma sparrow, we decided to take it to a bird sanctuary/rehab facility not too far from my house. It ended up having a broken wing, but was going to be fine. The lady that ran the place let us walk around outside where there was a lot of birds (all kinds of Geese, Ducks, Sparrows, and even a few Owls, Falcons, and Vultures).

My point to this story is that while we where outside, we became the interest of four turkeys. Those freakin things followed two other people and myself for a good twenty minutes. If it wasn't for the fact that they seemed like they were watching over their "domain," I would have been really freaked out.

To the OP:

Hopefully you just have a local neighbor(s) that has taken a liking to you and it isn't anything ill-boding.
