Two owls were calling to each other late Sunday afternoon at Holyoke’s Ashley Reservoir, but I couldn’t spot them.
When I reached the place where I thought the calls were coming from there was only silence. Then, far off, one owl called again.
“Maybe that’s the sound of an owl laughing,” said a woman out for a walk.
One thing you can almost always count on seeing at Ashley, though, are Canada Geese, and a pair flew overhead just as the sun was heading for the horizon.
