Lately I have noticed that owls have become part of Halloween decorations.....why?? Do people consider owls scary?? Is there some sort of folk lore associated with owls??
I've never noticed it in years past, but have seen them frequently in recent years. I suspect that maybe they've always had a part in it just due to their being a night creature. Likely, it's just a marketing scheme and everyone is following suit.
Imagine ancient peoples, in their tepees/yurts/caves/whatever, they have no electric lights or really much protection from what roams the darkness except some spears or arrows or whatever weapon they can devise.... and then a great horned owl sounds sounding off 50 feet from the lodge-flap, or whatever. I imagine that would be quite scary, or at least it would wake you up.Lately I have noticed that owls have become part of Halloween decorations.....why?? Do people consider owls scary??

I looked into those before and it just seemed a little complicated. They have to be facing the proper direction to keep it warm in there during winter, a certain height, away from activity ... I can't even get regular birds to come to my bird houses, so I didn't bother with the bat house. I still think about it though.Yup same I love bats as well, we put up a bat house a few years ago, sadly no takers.... I keep hoping one day.....
