I love all owls and the boobook is my favourite. When I was a child I would occasionally see a boobook in the pines on our property. One evening I saw one drinking from the paddling pool. A couple of years ago I was able to hold one at Raptor Domain on Kangaroo Island.
Don't like Owls really.
They are connection to the Occult.
The Owl has a dual symbolism of wisdom and darkness, the latter meaning evil and death. They are symbolically associated with clairvoyance, astral projection and magick, and is often times the medicine of sorcerers and witches.
