Excitement in the neighborhood
this week with visitors from nature.
While I was watering the flowers this week in my back yard, I discovered a Lunar Moth in a cedar tree. Although they are rarely seen, they are common. The adult life lasts only one week. They do not have a mouth. There only function is to mate. They are known as a giant silk worm moth.
The lunar moth has a wingspan of four and a half inches.
While I was excited by discovering the moth, right next door my neighbors had a visit from a juvenile peregrine falcon.
The falcon watched my neighbor all day.
They gave him a bowl of water.
The falcon had steak for dinner.
The neighbors ended up calling the Bird Whisperer. She is from Aviary of Paris Landing State Park that is 30 miles south of here on Kentucky Lake.
She said that the falcon is so imprinted by humans that they will probably use this bird as a teaching bird.
Thanks for stopping in.
