Here is my young friend Sophia: I was honored that she both shows me her very small house in her garden - I would have loved a house like that - with an upstairs bunk bed-style layer, and a settable in downstairs - to bits when I was her age (6). I was also very honored to be introduced to her stupendous collection of owls (here she is holding Tweet) and to be given an owl drawing to take home to LA. She knows an extraordinary amount about these birds: who (whooooo) knew about the Philippine Eagle Owl? Sophia can tell you. Hoot.
