Catching Up On Over-Due Photos

This domestic duck and a wild wood duck have been hanging out together for a number of weeks...



The trees bordering our yard have attracted a variety of birds recently...











Not far from the Catoctin Creek Park and Nature Center I found this flock of twenty one wild turkeys...




Zoomed in for a better look...



This turkey was feeding alone, closer to home...


Owls are easier to spot now that the leaves have fallen...




Unfortunately, they are more visible to crows also.  The crows delight in harassing owls and hawks...



A visit to the Monocacy Battlefield yielded several doe and fawn sightings. I think the bucks are still recuperating from the recent rut...





This fawn may think she is hidden...




Thanks for visiting, be well and come back soon.

  1. Wow. Just. Wow. These are so stunning. The cedar waxwings are my favorites, I think, simply because I only see them rarely. I'm hoping for some winter visitors, though.
