An odd night.

What a weird night... first, up at 1:30 and to the emergency vet with a sick dog. Driving home at 3:30, I hit an owl with my car; it came out of nowhere, dodged at the last minute. I just grazed it, and I think it flew away, but hit it right on the front windshield. 1/2 mile down the road THE SAME THING HAPPENED. WTF? I got home, brought the dogs to bed, but they had to pee. Wife and I are both up, we bring them out the front door, and there is a skunk in the yard. Dogs go nuts. Skunk turns and runs. A few moments later dogs went tearing across the yard in an insane rage; 7 deer are walking down the middle of the street as if they own it.

Very surreal.

You're going to need a lot of help interpreting all those omens...

Wow, speaking of that...

The other morning I left for work and my neighbor's fence was lined with crows. 20 or 30 of 'em. I jokingly remarked to my kids, "Uh oh, someone's gonna die in that house".

The very next day the neighbor right across the street from the crow house died in a not-very-pleasant manner.

Sounds like you might be in the middle of a Stephen King book, tread carefully and don't talk to any neighbors that look like fred gwyne

We (humans) are the ones that are out of place.
The critters probably think "WTF" every time they have to
dodge our vehicles/encroachment.
A few years ago, while leaving for work, I saw an injured dove.
I gathered it up in my hat, and took it to the Humane Society.
On route, I saw a pair of hawks on a tall light pole.
I have rarely seen what appeared to be a mated pair.
As I progressed further toward the HS, another hawk did a "kamikaze" into
the windshield of passing pickup truck.
3 odd bird adventures within an hour.
