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!
Sea Turtles have many natural predators on land and in the sea. Humans can be unkind without knowing it by traipsing around on top of a nest.
This large piece of driftwood was found on the beach a couple of weeks ago. I have to wonder what woodpecker pecked all these holes. It was too large to move so I straddled it to get a shot. I’m sure this old tree could tell some stories!
his Long-eared Owl was taking a nap in the middle of the day at the Desert National Wildlife Refuge located outside of Las Vegas, Nevada. Sleep by day so they can hunt by night.
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.
This was someone else’s setup as we trucked down the beach with our own beach cart packed with lunch, chairs, umbrellas and our packs that carry our camera & stuff. I actually got in the water on October 1st! What? Yep…sure did! It was just a little chillier than the last time I had gotten in. Didn’t stay in there long!
Memphis is a chocolate lab mix. Did I say chocolate…oh yeah that was yesterday’s square. He loves to watch television. Favorite shows are “The Pioneer Woman” on the Food Network, anything on Animal Planet, American Football and action movies. He is seen here getting ready for gameday with his Jacksonville Jaguars football jersey.
This cake was made by our local groceries’ bakery, Publix. I have had it a time or two or three or four. Publix’s motto is “Where shopping is a pleasure”. It certainly is!!!
