Week #19 challenge was Owls.
Disclaimer: If anyone has an issue with me using their photos in the round ups, please kindly let me know. I haven’t had anyone say anything, but I don’t want you to think I’m using your photographs for personal gain. I’m here to show what great work you are doing with your photography by showing you off in these posts.
There are over 200 species of owls in the world and most are solitary and nocturnal. They have built-in night vision to see and capture their prey such as small mammals, rodents, insects and other birds. They are divided into two families. The true owl family (Strigidae) and the barn-owl family (Tytonidae). A group of owls are called a parliament.
I encourage you to visit their blogs and see what amazing things they have going on. If I missed your post or there was a problem with a pingback, please let me know and I will be glad to add you to the list. Remember to pingback from my post of that week and not my page. Liking my page is encouraged!
Many awesome owls this week. The first set are the Great Horned Owl.
Aletta’s Spotted Eagle Owl is posing right up while standing in the sand while Anita’s Great Horned Owl is stuck in traffic.
So many owls I’ve never seen or heard of thanks to all you wonderful bloggers from around the world! Then there are some that I have and never photographed like the barn owl.
These two are regulars in Florida, but you have to go to specific locations to see the Burrowing Owl.
Then there is the elusive Snowy Owl that captures the heart of everyone, including Harry Potter. This is the bird I would like to see in the actual snow.
Nature provides us with a great deal of creativity and happiness in our lives. As Bird Weekly evolves, I find myself thinking outside the box with my owl cookies. I would encourage you to do the same. I’m enjoying this ride with all of you and miss some of our regulars this week who didn’t have any owl photos. Hope to see you back for Week #20. Keep em’ coming because the education I’m getting from all is so rewarding!
Next up: Week #20: Birds in your yard or garden.
I look forward to seeing your creations this week!
