    An owl does not say "hoot". An owl hoots.

    We Finns dont talk a lot and I am sure Finnish animals dont talk at all.

    I understand that this is a literal translation, but no native (American) English speaker would ever say "It is night and an owl says hoot" except to a small child. It would be "It is night and an owl hoots" or "It's night and an owl is hooting."

    Please stop with the onomatopoeia!

    Why is "se" not required here?
