La Lechuza is a creature out of Mexico and Texas. The legend is of a human-sized bird with a woman's face who lures victims to her by cooing and crying like a baby. She'll capture them and take them to her nest where she eats them at her leisure. In some tellings the creature came from a woman who practiced black magic before being killed by neighbors for her evil practices, while other tellings state that La Lechuza is a woman during the day but witchcraft turns her into an owl at night.
