“This tragic behavior wasn’t unusual for owls, who are emotionally delicate, even in the wild. For example, owls mate for life, and when an owl’s mate dies, he doesn’t necessarily go out and find another partner. Instead, he might turn his head to face the tree on which he’s sitting and stare fixedly in a deep depression until he dies. Such profound grief is indicative of how passionately owls can feel and how devoted they are to their mates.

          This is the Way of the Owl.”
