In Mexico and Texas tales are told of a ghost known as La Lechuza,“owl” in Spanish. Also known as the “Witch Bird.” Folkore says that she was once a curandera (woman who practices folk medicine to cure physical or spiritual illnesses) that was exposed as a witch and killed by the townspeople, but returned to seek revenge in the form of a human-sized bird with a woman’s face.
