“A wise old owl lived in an oak;
The more he saw the less he spoke;
The less he spoke the more he heard...
Why can't we all be like that bird?”
― Edward Hersey Richards

  10. sheila The female is a lot browner than the all black male...and a lot of that coloration is the sunshine on the bird. :o) As you can see the difference of the SAME bird in the very next photo without much sunlight interference in the coloring.
