Granny Shot It BOTD: November 2, 2019

Buzzard 4Turkey buzzards, October 10, 2019. Another photograph from my chance encounter on October 10, 2019 in Arnold, Maryland. This morning, as I was driving down the road, I saw a large bird-of-prey with a tiny morsel in its talons. It was flying rather low, but I was unable to identify its prey. It brought to mind a line from an old movie called, “The Night of the Hunter,” starring Lillian Gish and Robert Mitchum. Lillian Gish’s character is standing on the front porch and she sees a night owl capture a bunny rabbit. In response, she says, “The world is hard on little things.”

I know that I’ve posted pictures of individual sparrows on this part of the roof before, but I can’t find any evidence of group shots. A few days back, I posted a photo of a couple of sparrows that were in a little tree in the parking lot of the grocery store that I frequent. I hope these little guys are suitable for Granny Shot It’s Bird of the Day Challenge (aka BOTD.) I hope also that everybody had a great Halloween! –Russell
