Interspecies communication

Each evening the bird lover would stand in his backyard, trying to attract an owl into responding to his attempted owl call -- and one night, to his utter delight, an owl finally hooted back to him. He managed to keep the "conversation" going for over a month of nights. He even kept a log.

In the meantime, his wife was gradually getting to know the neighbours. During an over-the-fence chat, she happened to mention that her husband spent his nights calling out to owls.

"That is odd," replied the neighbour. "So does my husband."
