On Silent Wings

“It is the owl’s soft, shadow-silent wings that are dreaded. They spirit him through the dusk… his drop is swift and certain, and the grip of those loosely hanging legs is the very grip of death. There is no terror like the ghost-terror of the owl.”

— Wild Life Near Home by D. L. Sharp (1901)
