Last night, just after midnight, my wife and I were awakened by voices. At first we thought it must have been the kids stirring but as soon as we heard them again we realized we were wrong.

The voices were coming from outside the bedroom window where two owls were hooting to each other. And it was obvious from the tenor of their voices that one was a male voice and the other was female.

We listened to them for a while, appreciating the early morning, Valentine’s Day serenade until we fell asleep again.
