Yesterday I walked through the gully that runs along the back of our property. I try not to go there because it's home to the coyotes and great horned owls, and I don't want to disturb them. But yesterday there was a turkey buzzard circling around, and I needed to see what had caught its interest. Fortunately I didn't find anything gross, and I had a lovely walk. The vegetation is quite different along the gully. There are lots of ponderosa pines. In spite of my good intentions, I spooked the great horned owls.
