I think Cooper was pleased when he heard the owl because it fit in with
the transcendental experience of relieving himslef in the open air - kind
of a Thoreauean/Wordsworthian type of experience - man confronting nature
face to face and all that.  Given his earlier enthusiasm for Douglas firs and
ducks on the lake, having an owl perch above him must have been *peachy*.
If the bright light turns out to be aliens and Cooper starts building a
model of Devil's Tower out of mashed potatoes, I'm retiring my VCR from active
duty on Saturday nights.
