188/365 – 189/365 It’s for the birds

July 8, 2015


Meet Oliver. A screech owl. Isn’t he the cutest? He’s a rescue at Green Cay Wetlands in Boynton Beach and we got to meet him and learn about him and other wildlife local to us here in Florida. Our science camp field trips are not only fun, they are also educational. 🙂

And this is yours truly holding Georgina, an African Grey parrot. She was so sweet and patient and let all the kids hold her. Today, was truly one of my favorite field trip days. We went to visit McCarthys Wildlife Sanctuary a marvelous place with around 200 rescued animals… lions, tigers, a liger, leopards, monkeys, birds and many more. It’s something you just have to see for yourself. 

I hope you are having a fabulous summer so far and a great week. Weekend’s right around the corner… 🙂

xoxo, Susi

    Great shots! Love that one of the screech owl! Do they really screech when they squawk? (Does that make sense? LOL)

    • Susi July 10, 2015 at 11:11 pm

      Yes, they make a screeching sound, usually when they fly, hence the name. They are also one of the smallest owl species.
