To some people, macramé, and in particular, the Macramé Owl, is not just an art form, not just a spotting sport, but an actual “way of life”.
For those who have not yet been touched by the spirit of the Macramé Owl, this may seem difficult to believe. Those dedicated to Macramé Owl Wisdom are often met with a society intolerant of their personal and philosophical views and beliefs.
For those to whom this is a new and uncharted territory, we ask that you keep an open mind and heart, and allow yourself to embrace the true beauty that is the Macramé Owl.
Indeed, the Macramé Owl remains elusive in many countries. Recent years have produced sightings in North America, Europe and as far as India. We hope to bring you more photos of these fine specimens as we crusade to bring out of obscurity and bring to light the plight of the sacred macramé owl.
Reviving the Art and Sport of Macramé Owl Spotting
Macramé Owl Spotting was popular throughout the mid 60s to early 70s. By the late 80s, the macramé owl was thought to be extinct.
However, reliable sources have proven that the Macramé Owl is alive and well, albeit in hiding. We offer you documented photo evidence to prove this fact.
We aim to revive appreciation for the Macramé Owl and its related sport of Macramé Owl Spotting.
We urge you to find, document with photo evidence, and submit findings to us here at Macramé Owl, so that we can immortalize this fascinating creature for future generations. You can post your own spotting stories on our Feedback page on the Hoot & Annie Blog or on our Facebook page.
Please do not allow the Macramé Owl to become extinct!
Below: This female Brush-tailed Macramé Owl was spotted avidly guarding this plant pot, containing what we believe to be a nest. It was too risky to approach her, but we will be keeping an eye on her from a distance and will report any further findings over time.
