i have always heard hearing an owl
What does Seeing An Owl Mean?
Are you sure you're not thinking of "howl"? That can be heard but not seen. "Owl" is a bird (hibou in French) and can be heard and seen.
Please remember that here you should use proper English grammar and sentence structure. Avoid spellings like thanx, and greetings like Hey. The word I (meaning oneself) must always be capitalized, at any location in a sentence.
I believe that you are asking about "seeing an owl" as a saying. Are you? If so, I am not familiar with it. I need more information about how it is used.
Would you please tell us something about the context in which you saw or heard this reference to seeing a owl? We always require information like this when you ask a question. It helps us give you the right answer.
for ex i heard someone he said: are you a morning person or night owl?
wht does he mean with (owl)
Thank you for the context.
We call people who stay up all night the way owls do "night owls".
It is a common figure of speech.
Now i understand
You are so generous
Thanx a lot
Thanks a lot
