Acoustic guitar work soars with Celtic detail. The song tells the story of an unfortunate Barred Owl that must remain forever in captivity. The lyrics find a good balance, not preachy, but an invitation to embrace an expanded view of the world. The rich female alto singer is sensitive to dynamics and a delight to hear.

"New England Wildlife Center in South Weymouth, Ma once introduced me to a Barred Owl named Ottis. Ottis was a teaching owl, no longer able to stay out in the wild. The opportunity to visit with Ottis, to look into those amazing eyes really taught me a lot. I had to write a song! Enjoy this wonderful world we share!" -Colette O'Connor
