Their wingspan (from wingtip to wingtip) is 4.2 to 4.8 feet (1.3 to 15. meters). In the wild, snowy owls generally live for about 9.5 years. In captivity, they can live 35 years.
MALE COSTAS HUMMINGBIRD ~ such a pretty little bird. (thanks to some PIINTEREST friends for getting me the info!)
Desert Cardinal. Wonder which deserts this one is in? I live in the desert and never saw one of these beauties!

One of the most exciting things I have ever seen was a great horned owl in the woods while out on an Autumn drive. We stopped the car, got out and watched until several minutes later he flew away silently through the trees. I will never forget it.
