  3. Double-barred finches, sometimes referred to as Owl finches because of the dark ring of feathers around the face. Thank you Jehovah God for all creatures great and small, the work of your hands bring joy to man! As their name suggests, owl finches look like little owls with their distinctive markings. These are curious and social little birds. Photo of an owl finchThe owl finch a grass finch, also known as the Bicheno finch or the double-barred finch, is a lively addition to a community aviary and a good bird for the novice who may not have a lot of experience with birds. In terms of coloration, the owl finch can’t compete with another popular Australian citizen, the Gouldian, or even the common zebra finch, but its distinctive markings and social disposition give it a character all its own. It stands between 3 and 4 inches in length, and has two distinct black bars above and below a whitish-beige chest, one bar circling the underpart of the “chin,” and the other rounding the bird’s underside. The wings are brown with white speckles, and the “face mask” is white. The beak is gray and the eye is black. There is one subspecies, the black-rumped owl finch, which has, obviously, a black rump. Because of crosses with the nominate owl finch (which has a white rump), the rumps on some birds may be blotchy — not quite black, not quite white. The visual difference between the sexes is so slight, even owl finch experts have a difficult time telling the males from the females. The males are said to have thicker bands and a whiter chest, though this is not always consistent. Males do have a soft, sweet song and females do not, so separating birds and listening for the song is one way of determining gender. Native Region / Natural Habitat The owl finch is native habitat is Australia, particularly the woodlands, grasslands, and scrublands, though they can also be found in city parks as well. They travel in groups numbering four to 40, and are active flyers. Care & Feeding The owl finch needs generous housing, and does best in a larger space. An aviary is great, one that’s full of branches and safe foliage. They will get along with most other Australian and Old World finches, as well as canaries, but they don’t like to be crowded. Because they are closely related to the zebra finch, these two species may successfully interbreed, resulting in “mules,” birds which can’t reproduce. This is highly discouraged among the bird community. In an aviary or large cage, it’s essential to keep at least three pairs of owl finches if there is to be more than one pair. Four owl finches may fight and compete with one another, whereas six birds will be more peaceable. This is true for many commonly kept bird species, especially if they are true pairs. Owl finches will set up a nest in just about anything. They prefer a covered woven nest to a nest box. The males love to build nests and seek out new nesting sites. Nesting material is essential — short, clean string or long, soft grasses are best. Coconut fiber is okay if it’s cut into smaller pieces. Remember that a finch can become tangled in long nesting material, or can catch a toe in a woven basket nest and not be able to get out. These birds bond for life. The female will usually lay between three and six eggs, though more is not uncommon. The babies hatch out at about two weeks and look like zebra finch babies, a duller version of their parents. They molt into their adult feathers by about four months of age. The chicks will generally leave the nest when they are three weeks old, but stay with the parents until they are thirty to 35 days old. If the parents have gone back to nest and have eggs, they may become aggressive with the babies, so it’s best to move them to another cage at that time. Owl finches can breed at 6 months of age, but it’s best to wait at least nine months to a year to breed them. This gives the owner a chance to get them into prime breeding condition, which is done though a varied and healthy diet and enough light and exercise. Owl finches are generally good parents, but some can be a little too carefree with their sitting habits, or can toss the occasional baby out of the nest. It’s convenient to have other similarly sized finches nesting at the same time, such as zebra and society finches, who will generally willingly foster the eggs or babies. Owls that are good parents will also foster other species as well. Owl finches that are housed indoors will appreciate as large of a cage as possible, at least 2 by 3 feet, longer and wider rather than taller. These birds are small, but they’re active. Females can become egg-bound if they don’t get enough exercise. Because they can succumb easily to cold temperatures, this finch must be kept in temperatures no lower than 60 degrees Fahrenheit, though they prefer to be warmer. They do not like drafts, and can’t handle prolonged periods of direct sunlight unless they have a cooler shady spot where they can retreat. The owl finch should be fed a good-quality seed and pellet-based diet, such as Lafeber’s Premium Daily Diet specifically designed for finches, along with egg food, a mineral grit, and charcoal. They will also appreciate nestling food, as well as packaged easy-to-make soft foods for birds. A cuttlebone should also be available as a source of calcium. Owl finches relish grubs or small mealworms, and can have two to four per bird per day. Nesting owl finches and those feeding babies should have live food available as a protein source. These birds hunt insects in the wild, so it’s a natural food for them. If these are not available, another protein source can be used, such as well-cooked hard boiled egg crumbled into a separate cup. Finches Love to eat: Premium Daily Diet Lafeber food for Finches Personality & Behavior Owl finches are active little bids and curious, too. They will come check anything new added to their aviary or flight cage. Speech & Sound Owl finches do not sing as much as zebra finches. Male owl finches emit a soft repetitive as a soft repetitive song which they raise their neck and start attempting around 3 months of age. Hens are not mute they do make a “meep” sound. They do not sing as often as say Zebras or Societies but can be noticed if you observe them on a regular basis. Health & Common Conditions Finches can be prone to air-sac mite infection, especially when overly stressed. This is a serious medical condition that warrants immediately veterinary care. Finches can also be susceptible to scaly face (a condition caused by a mite that presents as white, scaly areas around the beak/eyes, as well as the legs), which also warrants a call to the vet. Finches can also have overgrown nails or beaks, which should be addressed by an experienced bird groomer or vet. Get an Owl Finch Owl finches are not as widely available as zebra finches, society finches and Gouldian finches, but they can be found for sale from a bird breeder who specializes in finches, as well as some pet stores. https://lafeber.com/pet-birds/species/owl-finch/
  4. Feast your eyes and soul on this stunning aurora borealis in the northern hemisphere, captured by the International Space Station on January 20, 2016. “As regards the heavens, to Jehovah the heavens belong,” states Psalm 115:16, “but the earth he has given to the sons of men.” Another psalm states: “He has founded the earth upon its established places; it will not be made to totter to time indefinite, or forever.” (Psalm 104:5) If the universe and our beautiful planet are designed and produced by a Creator, surely it is not too much to believe that he also has the ability to maintain these. This means that you can confidently look forward to the fulfillment of the wonderful promise: “The righteous themselves will possess the earth, and they will reside forever upon it.” (Psalm 37:29) To be sure, God “did not create [the earth] simply for nothing” but “formed it even to be inhabited” forever by appreciative humans who acknowledge his doings.—Isaiah 45:18.

  6. Celestial Doughnut In this composite image released on May 23, visible-light observations by the Hubble Space Telescope are combined with infrared data from the ground-based Large Binocular Telescope in Arizona to assemble a dramatic view of the well-known Ring Nebula. The combined imagery gave astronomers a deeper understanding of the nebula's structure. "The nebula is not like a bagel, but rather, it's like a jelly doughnut, because it's filled with material in the middle," says C. Robert O'Dell of Vanderbilt University. Thank you Jehovah God, your works are amazing! 🎆🎇🌠🎇🎆 Glory to your Name forever and ever.

  10. Panjin Red Beach, China - Neat! The Red Beach is located in the Liaohe River Delta, about 30 kilometer southwest of Panjin City in China. The beach gets its name from its appearance, which is caused by a type of sea weed that flourishes in the saline-alkali soil. The weed that start growing during April or May remains green during the summer. In autumn, this weed turns flaming red, and the beach looks as if it was covered by an infinite red carpet that creates a rare red sea landscape. Most of the Red Beach is a nature reserve and closed to the public. Only a small, remote, section is open for tourists.. Beautiful creation! ‼️
  11. Jellyfish puzzle for marine experts - Barrel jellyfish are harmless to humans Scientists are baffled by the increase of jellyfish around the coasts of Wales. Thousands of barrel jellyfish have been found stranded in Carmarthen Bay, and a large number of moon jellyfish have been startling tourists off Anglesey. Although experts stress that these two species are harmless they are keen to know the reasons for their apparent increase. The fish are not the only recent arrivals - giant rare leatherback turtles, which feed on the jellyfish, have also been spotted. Dr John Houghton, a researcher at the University of Wales in Swansea, said it was important to study the creatures. "What we are trying to do at the moment is work out why these animals - which we really associate with the tropics and much warmer places - are appearing in the Irish Sea in such large numbers," he said. Moon jellyfish are often seen floating in "rafts" "It is apparent they have been turning up for quite a long time, although we used to think of them as occasional visitors to these kinds of waters. "But the numbers we are talking about suggest they have a much closer association." Dr Houghton revealed it was hard to say whether the increase in jellyfish was caused by global warming. "There hasn't really been an awful lot of research done on them because they are very hard to study in the water - you catch them in a net and they just turn into nothing. "What we are trying to do is have a little look at them washing up on the beaches." Dr Houghton added that leatherback turtles had a history of visiting the area. "The leatherbacks are fantastic animals - Wales has got quite a close association with them. "In 1998-9, the largest one ever in the world washed up in Harlech - it was just under 10ft long and about 916 kilos." Dr Houghton is asking anyone interested in helping the research to contact him at the university, where he is compiling a local survey on ecology of the Welsh and Irish coasts. http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/wales/3096663.stm

  13. This Freaky Spinning Ice Circle in Maine Looks Like a Giant Alien Landmark It's been compared to crop circles, or the strange handiwork of aliens. Others say it looks like the Moon, if it somehow materialised in the chilly waters of the Presumpscot River. But this massive churning formation in the city of Westbrook, Maine isn't evidence of something from outer space, but rather a bizarre and brilliant example of a natural terrestrial phenomenon called an ice disc. These strange, spinning spectacles are incredibly rare sightings, but even so, this one – estimated to measure about 90 metres (300 ft) across – is a giant amongst its little-seen kind. (City of Westbrook/Facebook) "It might be a world-record size, if anybody were keeping track," Caltech physicist Kenneth G. Libbrecht told The New York Times . The eerie, icy formation, which steadily rotates in a counter-clockwise direction, was first noticed by Westbrook citizens on Monday. In fairness, though, by that point, a number of the city's animal residents had already flocked to the unlikely new attraction. "There were ducks sitting on it," local man Rob Mitchell, who alerted city authorities to the strange spinning disc, told the Portland Press Herald . "The ducks were rotating on this big Lazy Susan. It was a big duck-go-round." (City of Westbrook/Facebook) Ice discs have intrigued scientists since at least the late 19th century, when a reader of Scientific American described "a revolving ice cake" spotted on the Mianus River near Bedford, New York. "I inclose a rough drawing, which will give an idea of this curious formation," J.M. Bates wrote to the publication in 1895. Since then, the conventional explanation for the unusual rotation is the swirling motion of river eddies, which keep ice formations on frigid rivers in a state of perpetual spinning. "Since the water in the eddy is flowing more slowly than the main current, it's more likely to freeze, creating the icy disc," experimental physicist John Huth from Harvard University explained to The Boston Globe . "The icy disc retains the rotation of the eddy, as it's caught in it." Meanwhile, a combination of melting and shearing effects (impacts against the rocky shoreline or other ice, for instance) continually shape the edges of the disc, keeping it circular. But that's not all that's going on with ice discs. A 2016 experiment recreated the natural phenomenon in the lab – where no eddies happened to be swirling – and concluded that something else had to be contributing to the spin. In that study, researchers discovered, as water melts off the ice disc and sinks below it, it generates a "vertical vortex" under the disc that induces the ice block above to rotate. In the case of the Westbrook phenomenon, it all adds up to an amazing demonstration of physics in the natural environment. Or, in other words, "big disk energy", as one wit on Twitter put it. And it makes for some very happy ducks. Those birds aren't the only winners. The city of Westbrook is busily exploiting tourism opportunities afforded by interest in the massive churning spectacle, at least while it lasts. "The mysterious Ice Disk is still spinning today in Westbrook," local authorities wrote in a Facebook post. "Come down to the River Walk, take a selfie, and grab some lunch at one of our awesome nearby restaurants!" Amazingly Our Creator has many Miracles! ❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️⛄️❄️❄️❄️❄️❄️
