and looking like this! They give a whole new meaning to ‘bad hair day’!
They may not be much to look at, but I do appreciate what they do.
I’m not sure what is back in the creek (and I probably don’t want to know), but the vultures were circling and very interested in something.
The black areas on the head looks like their eyes, but when you look closer…
their eyes are behind the black part.
They really are interesting looking creatures in a weird kind of way 🙂
I didn’t know vultures were a bird found in the upper Northwest. A whole tree full of them is kind of spooky. I guess you don’t have to worry about them trying to grab anything alive, do you?
Buzzards really serve a useful purpose. I can’t say I love them, but I like them better than dead animals piling up on the side of the road.
I’ve heard that black vultures do kill young animals, but turkey vultures don’t.
It was a little spooky seeing a tree full of them. The buzzards just returned here. They migrate to the tropics for the winter – I think this sounds like a great plan! Turkey vultures are ‘true’ scavengers and really prefer well- rotten food.
