Looking for the author of a short story called Owls which I read in a sci fi magazine in the 80s. It was about 2 travelers driving through a forest at night and seeing a caution sign that says owls.
The story has these 2 travelers driving through wooded area and passed a caution sign that says owls. Because it seemed odd for there to be a caution sign that says owls the men stop to examine the sign. Now this is happening at night. Both men get out of car and while the man that noticed the sign examines and discovers the sign really does say owls the disbeliever is swept up into the air. As he raises his flash light to see what has him he sees a claw and wing right before he drops the flashlight.
