Great Horned Owl visits meadow....Was looking out the window several days ago and saw this large bird fly into the top of my White Cedar tree. Thought it was a hawk ,but when I viewed it through the video camera, saw the ear -tufts. Have seen it once before this year,in early morning. Many years ago,the land adjacent to where we live was a large turkey farm. I worked for the owners ,as a kid, once a year a great horned would come thru the area and destroy a large amount of birds,sometimes 50 or so.Black & white was used to eliminate the red fringes in the color video capture.
