Bathtime in the garden, Manatees, Screech Owl

It has been hot this week, and the bird baths are quite popular.

We did have a cool front a couple of weeks ago, which brought in the manatees. Got these shots at the Manatee Lagoon in Riviera Beach.

Lastly, the screech owl has continued to check out the nest box every few nights. Here she is testing out the bedding. I hope it is to her liking!

She has been back several times since, so we are hoping that she is planning to nest here.
