Turkey Vulture



On my way home Tuesday I saw this turkey vulture eating on a black cat. The cat had been hit by a car several days before. When I passed the vulture it flew up into the tree. So I pulled to the side of the road, walked as closely as the vulture would allow and took its picture. Shortly after this pic was taken he/ she flew off across the field. Isn't it a beaut?

How disgusting! I know it's the way of the world, but still...

One day a few years ago, I was sitting at my work computer. I face the window and the window has a large ledge. A turkey vulture came along and sat on the ledge looking in the window. I grabbed my phone and took a photo. I sent it to my boss who joked something about work being dead boring. :)
