Caught hooting at the owl

Shortly after moving in here, I discovered an owl that roosted in the neighborhood.

Mornings and evenings he is quite vocal.  If I hoot at him he hoots back.  We have had several nice conversations. 

That's what I was doing this morning with the dogs out in front of our building.  I was busy hooting and managing dogs so I didn't notice the sheriffs deputy that had cruised up.  (apparently the patrol they neighborhood occasionally, nice to know)

'Are you OK?' 

Yes sir.  Just walking the dogs

What was that noise you were making?

I explained what I was doing, a little sheepish to have been caught.  He got out of the car and we hooted with the owl for a few minutes.

WHEW!!  I just knew I had violated some obscure hooting ordinance!
