Every month the St. Augustine Lighthouse & Maritime Museum has a Sunset/Moonrise Tour where only a few can climb the 219 step cylinder lighthouse. It is $30.00 per person and well worth going up there and having a chance to watch the sunset and the moon rise in the same night.

All of us are going to have a different variety for this week so I can’t wait to see what everyone else is seeing from their window, front porch, back patio area or wherever you enjoy the likes of our feathered friends near and around your home.
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.

This week on Bird Weekly, we explored Owls. On that post at the end, I posted a photo of these Owl cookies that I made 5 years ago for my Bunco friends when I hosted the game in December, 2015. They turned out exactly like the instructions.
Brown Pelicans in different strides of their flight over my head. I like the use of the negative space in this photo which I don’t use very often. Hope you like it too!
Owls are nocturnal meaning they are mostly active at night. There are two species that are truly diurnal (meaning they are active both day and night). They are the Northern Hawk Owl and the Northern Pygmy Owl.
When we learn the English alphabet, we are taught, “A” is for apple. This week, “A” is for Anhinga, Avocet, American this and Australian & African that. Then there were the use of the scientific names of our avian favs that took the “A” right out of the box.
