Barn Owls, October 19, 2016

ABC Wednesday and Wild Bird Wednesday

ABC Wednesday
O is for Orange - the color between red and yellow on the color wheel.
Lawrenceburg, Tennessee, USA, October 13, 2016
Fritillary Butterflies and Mexican Sunflowers: perfect to illustrate the color Orange!

(Sorry about the distracting background in this one).

Wild Bird Wednesday
Lawrenceburg, Tennessee, USA, October 13, 2016
Barn Owls, Tyto alba, may be seen in open country, forest edges and clearings, cultivated areas, and in cities in North America. They are nocturnal hunters, feeding almost entirely on rodents, and sleeping during the daytime. One of them opened an eye briefly as I walked by, then went back to sleep. I saw these owls at a Wildlife Rehabilitation Center at David Crockett State Park in Tennessee.

Have a wonderful day!
