Owl mourns after baby dies in fall from a tree

Date Posted: 2006-07-14

A Screech Owl who’s made its home in front of the Hateruma Island elementary school library lost her baby in an accident earlier this month.

The baby owl, which hatched this Spring, fell from the sprawling tree adjacent to the school and died.

The forlorn mother kept hovering over the tree for four days, then moved inside the school gymnasium. The owl flew around the gym, staying close to the ceiling but not eating or drinking. She watched the children play, but wouldn’t come close.

After five days in the gym, teachers opened all windows so the owl could fly back to the forest. After a week, she accepted her loss and left the school. Students say they learned a great lesson in love from watching the owl’s actions.
