Owled Again~

There are definitely far worse ways to start the week than looking at images of wildlife… Cindy Knoke gets us all off to a brilliant week with her images of the wisest bird of them all… the owl.

The Living Coast Discovery Center in The San Diego Bay National Wildlife Refuge is breeding these remarkable little owls and visitors can get up close and personal with these very curious creatures which is an incredible experience.

In the wild Burrowing Owls live mostly in squirrel and gopher burrows, often sharing space with their furry room mates.

Artificial burrows have been set up here where you can watch the owls and their nests in the wild which is quite fascinating!

About Smorgasbord - Variety is the Spice of Life.

My name is Sally Cronin and I am doing what I love.. Writing. Books, short stories, Haiku and blog posts. My previous jobs are only relevant in as much as they have gifted me with a wonderful filing cabinet of memories and experiences which are very useful when putting pen to paper. I move between non-fiction health books and posts and fairy stories, romance and humour. I love variety which is why I called my blog Smorgasbord Invitation and you will find a wide range of subjects. You can find the whole story here.
