Buzzards Are Back!
Is this not the most ghoulish picture? I could easily see this on a Halloween card...or perhaps a still photo from a "psycho" type movie...but, this photo was taken 10:32am...in my neighborhood....on February 9, 2009. Hmmmm. These 'turkey buzzards' (as I've been told) once a year flock to this one area in my neighborhood. They tend to only like this cluster of trees, on this particular street. This home was built amongst the primo cluster of trees since last year, and have now become a favorite roosting place. These giant birds sit with their wings completely extended for 15-20 minutes. I know this because, I've actually sat and watched them. These ugly, giant, very large pooping birds fascinate me! I was unaware of their recent arrival..but, my honey played golf yesterday and shared the news. The giant, ugly buzzards are back!
