    Got Turkey Vultures?

    Snapped this pic up the road from our house tonight, when my daughter and I went out for a ride on the 50's

    Ironic you posted a picture of them on an old barn. There is an old barn near us and we see the vultures on it's roof peak every year.

    They have been back several weeks

    One year a couple were "dancing" on the peak wings spread wide. Maybe courting a female vulture?

    We also see bunches of them in the fall as they migrate south. They will clean up a dead deer in two days.

    I roll around on a bone stock '12 CRF50f, and she rolls around on an '06 LTZ-50 4 stroke. She's been asking lately about learning to ride the CRF. She's 5 and rides that little Suzuki like she stole it. Just loves it. We race around the yard all the time.

    They love some road kill!
    I'll be mowing the lawn not knowing they are flying overhead until they block the sun for a split second, casting a shadow over me.

    It would be a really good pic, if I could photo shop the pole out of it.

    We call them Turkey Buzzards around here - same thing I think. They arrive within the same few days every year toward the end of March.

    They are a pain on the roadside with road kills - they wait until the last second to take flight - and they are slow. I know of a couple people who have whacked one - makes for quite a mess of the grill or windshield.

    But as with everything else in nature they provide a need - for them it’s cleaning up carrion.

    Yup, same thing, Vultures/Buzzards. They're ornery for sure.

    That's exactly the name I was trying to think of when we came across all of them. Just couldn't remember it. His name and that pic are definitely familiar!
