What is the story of La Lechuza? In this version of the story, the woman is accused of being a witch responsible for the boy’s disappearance.

What does it mean when a Lechuza flies over you?

Legend says that the cry of a Lechuza mimics the cry of a baby or whistles and they use it to lure you outside, to take you and make you their meal. Sometimes the cry of the Lechuza is said to be an omen of death, if you hear it, a family member will die. Some say dreaming of the Lechuza is also an omen of death. The Lechuza is so big that it can carry a grown adult in its talons.

The Lechuza is said to bring storms with it and cannot be harmed by guns. It is also said to prey on human emotions, often appearing during domestic disputes and waiting for her next victim to storm outside. Some versions of the legend, the Lechuza only preys on adult men, drunks specifically, but in others the lechuza craves the blood of newborn babies and especially unbaptized babies.

What does the owl mean in Mexican culture?

What does an owl symbolize in Mexican culture? I’m not an anthropologist, so I can’t give you the “correct” answer for this, but I’ll tell you an anecdote and you take it from there: As a young doctor assigned to a small Mexican village, my house visits were on foot, and because I had to be in the clinic during the day, mostly made at night.

The village houses were built around two open squares, one at the top of a hill and the other at the bottom. The two squares were joined by two very steep streets. Not a paving stone, street light or tarmac in sight, plenty of trees, though.

Sometimes the owl is variously depicted as black or white and sometimes with the head of the old woman.

How do I protect myself from Lechuza?

The only historical marker in my tiny hometown is La Iglesia Antigua, an old gothic church built in 1882 along Old Military Highway 281. I can neither confirm nor deny that a part of my adolescence was spent sneaking into this church with my friends to catch a glimpse of the Lechuzas (barn owls) that lived inside it. As Tejano folklore goes, La Lechuza is a witch who shapeshifts into a giant owl to haunt those who have wronged her.

She lures people with her whistles before swooping down to attack them. The only way to protect yourself from La Lechuza is to throw salt, curse at her, or in the case of the teenagers of Santa Maria, run and scream and tell everyone at school your version of this legendary Tejano folk story — 10/10 would recommend.
