My neighborhood Vultures
This post is my way of supporting Vulture awareness. The first Vulture Awareness day which is tomorrow Sept 5, 2009. You can click on my cute vulture link to see and read more about the Vultures.
I live adjacent to a watershed area which seems to be home for many Vultures. Mostly I see the Turkey Vulture and the Black Vultures flying over my yard. In the hunting season and the winter months the Vultures will feed on deer carcass that the hunters leave behind.
I love this shot of a Turkey Vulture flying over our lake. It is amazing just to watch them gliding in the wind.
Just about any time of the year I can see these guys sitting in the trees around my house. In their own way they are cleaning up the mess that the hunters leave behind. They are not the prettiest birds I have seen but they are interesting to see and watch. Sometimes it can be a little eerie to see so many in the trees near my house. I do not mind them hanging around, I must find them interesting I keep taking pictures of them.
