ANGRY_CROW_TAUNTING A GREAT HORNED_OWL_013 This picture was taken in my small backyard. I was inside and heard what sounded like a crow . I went outside and saw this large black crow cawing and flying around in circles. He was dive bombing this grey owl in broad daylight and trying to knock him out of the tree. It continued for 30 minutes until the owl finally had enough and flew away. American Crow,Corvus brachyrhynchos Click/tap to enlarge
