Great Horned Owl and Black Vulture...

This is the first Great Horned Owl that I have been able to photograph in the wild. I was very happy to find him this morning...


“A wise old owl sat on an oak; The more he saw the less he spoke; The less he spoke the more he heard; Why aren't we like that wise old bird?”

First quoted by John D. Rockefeller in 1915, but believed to be from a much older proverb.



The new "Catoctin Creek Nature Center and Park" provided the opportunity to photograph this Black Vulture perching on the chimney of an ancient stone building...

  1. I rode my bike out there last week and one was perched on the very same spot--with its wings outstretched. Spooky way to enter the park! :)

    Nice photo!
