Thoughts and pictures of my wanderings through the Allegheny Mountains hunting grouse and woodcock with my Ryman-type English Setters during the fall and winter months, fishing for smallmouth bass in local streams and rivers during the summer months and wandering over my 66 acres of heaven year round.

Shaver's Creek Environmental Center
The wife and I took a ride up into northern Huntingdon County to visit the Shaver's Creek Environmental Center. It features educational programs, a raptor center with hawks, owls, and other raptors that are injured in some way and not able to be released into the wild, and a collection of reptiles and amphibians to view. Here are some pics of the raptors they have. Forgot to get any pics of the nice rattlesnake & copperhead that was also there.
A Great Horned Owl
A pair of Barn Owls
A trio of Barred Owls
A Black Vulture
A Peregrine Falcon
A Bald Eagle
A very interesting place tucked away in the Stone Valley region of Huntingdon County.
