The Mysterious Phenomenon of Lechuzas in South Texas
In South Texas, especially under a bright moon, things come to life at night. Deer graze, wild hogs steal corn from game feeders, rattlesnakes hunt for warm meat, and sometimes, an owl takes flight to hunt for prey. However, some believe that owls are more than just night hunters. In particular, three women from Zavala County recall a frightening experience they had while driving home from a shopping trip.
A large, dark bird appeared in front of their car, flying faster than the vehicle and circling around it. Suddenly, their car died, and they were stranded, but it eventually restarted. They attributed the strange incident to a lechuza, a witch/owl-like creature that has been part of folklore in South Texas and Mexico for centuries. Some believe that lechuzas are witches who transform into birds, while others think they are the spirits of women with a grudge. To protect against a lechuza, people pray, tie knots, seek the help of a healer, or shoot the bird. However, despite the fear they inspire, lechuzas are generally considered not dangerous and are especially active in Zavala County and often appear on lonely roads.
Second Lechuza story
My other wife I once had was once tormented by a lechuza in her home when she was there alone when she was a kid.
She woke to hear persistent scratching on the door, she went and hid. Afterwards she peered out a window to see a large Lechuza bird staring at her from a tree branch. She said it was smaller than an average person. She said the neighborhood dogs began chasing it and harassing it. This is when my wife locked herself in her room til morning. When she woke, all the dogs from the surrounding houses lay dead, and their were claw marks on the door.
My ex was never a bullshitter and would always give truthful accounts.
What I’m about to tell you will sound incredibly strange.
My common law wife is a Mexican witch and turns into a lechuza. She also puts hexes on people, though I’ve made her stop most of this.
She has caused people to have serious car accidents too.
I sort of interviewed her about the transformation and other questions about it. She states that first she has to remove all her clothes. She also says she doesn’t like to transform because her whole body aches afterward.
I leave sometimes on a bicycle, and there is indeed often a white owl that seems to be trailing me. I lived in this city for 15 years before I met her, and I never saw those owls in the city. Now I see them frequently,in bizarre, unlikely places, but particularly on nights when we have a fight and I leave.
When I go for my outdoor exercises at night, I’ll even asker her to please, please don’t follow me (in the air) because it’s invading my privacy.
When I took a vacation on the other side of the country where my mom is, I noticed for the first time there was no presence in the air or the feeling of being watched. My wife informed me she is unable to travel that far with her powers.
My wife is an authentic Mexican witch and Lechuza. I’m very glad she has stopped most of this involvement, though.

Oh strange small small small virtual world…if anyone could find Blum on a map hahaha much less in real life…I had the honor..(.not) of living there most of my life and my parent’s are from there….uhmmm so there is the story of goatman at old foamy, but in truth that man lived on down the tracks…once you get to where you saw that thing….if you go right, right before the tracks….and keep driving it will take you down to this man house, all kind of different cars out there…and a well…not to mention the old graveyard from 1800 in hill country right there 20 miles away. Sightings of a hoofed shadow, but nobody has seen a full on corpse of it, just heard growling, I caught some on facebook live but they deleted my video… when I asked why they just sent an auto response saying they are working on the problem….its a private graveyard, I have a few family members buried there as well. I heard kids laughing and music, but on the video all you could hear is high pitched tones when I say do you hear that? Not to mention what brought me to this sight is research for my book Im polishing up about my boyfriend from Cleburne who died and it was never looked into…Well until now….so I needed a little more info on the lechuza, I heard it comes after pregnant women and children. If you see one you are to call it every name in the book to make it go away and yes you can pray while doing so, AND DO NOT whistle at it, or it will haunt you on your death bed laughing and taunting you as you die! muhahahaha enjoy haunted tejas!!!
Was this at night? And were you on drug? Possibly to much car fumes…what happened to your son? And did you graduate high school because your grammar is atrocious. These are my questions , you have a nice day.
