“Given that Rorate Coeli and Shea are mad at Fr. Z, I think it proves Fr. Z knows what he is doing and he is right.”
"Let me be clear. Fr. Z is a shock jock, mostly. His readership is vast and touchy. They like to be provoked and react with speed and fury."

I dedicate this in particular to a certain Manhattan cleric who – so I am told – has been dismissive of these ornithological posts
WHOA,What do You Mean By That?
Gives new meaning to the word “sardonic.”
Heh, probably one of Fr. Z’s buddies. Nobody like a friend to give you a hard time, and nobody like a New Yorker to give you the bird. So to speak. :)
Hmm… that might make a nice motto for a Cardinal’s coat of arms, if his brethren have a good sense of humor.
They really did an awesome job with the “new” Greek and Roman galleries…one of my favorite NY spots!
LOL regarding the dismissive cleric and unpopular owl.:)
This business about the owl got around.
The 12th century English poem The Owl and the Nightingale references this as well – the Nightingale points out that the Owl is “loÞ al feulkunne” – “loathed by all fowlkind” = “hated by all birds”, “laidly to behold and loathly in many ways”.
We have a nesting pair in our backyard, and just like the Owl in the poem they are entertaining when they sing at night.
