Yesterday I saw a Bald Eagle in a pine tree–today it was a pair of Black Vultures.

They sat together on this branch for a little while, observing whatever was going on nearby. The one on the right had the typical bald head of a Black Vulture, but the one on the left had feathers on its upper neck and head.

I looked up Black Vultures and learned that juveniles don’t have the bare head, so the vulture on the left must have been a juvenile.

A few leaves are starting to fall in our yard, and at first glance I thought this was one of them.

But it’s actually a moth that resembles a dead leaf when it spreads its wings flat on the grass. Here it has its wings raised a bit, and you can see antennae and I think a leg or two.
