  Every night for a year, Neil Simmons quietly went out of his house. He wanted to “talk” to an owl (猫头鹰) settling for the night at the end of his garden .He made owl cries like a real wild owl and was happy to hear the bird “hooting” back to him.
  Last year Fred Cornes moved in next door. He heard and owl hooting and answered back. For 12 months the neighbors got into the back gardens of their homes, thinking they were talking with nature. Mr. Simmons kept a diary of all his talks with his bird friend. They would both be out again tonight if it weren’t for a chance talk between their wives.
  Mr. Simmons said: “My wife Kim was telling Fred’s wife Wendy about my owl watching and described (描述) how I got the birds to boot back. She said, ‘That’s funny—that’s just what Fred has been doing.’ Then the penny dropped. I felt such a fool when I found out. The trouble is that owl calls aren’t exactly the same and it’s easy to make a mistake.”
  Mr. Cornes said: “I’m really flattered (过奖). I didn’t know I sounded so real. I love nature and I couldn’t resist hooting at the owls. I was very excited when they hooted back. I’m sorry that I was fooling my neighbor who was fooling me.”
