So, yesterday afternoon, we pulled into the driveway after running some errands and my place was overrun with buzzards. These are not turkey vultures, since they do not have a red head. I wonder if they are migrating north already. There were a lot of them, but some were flying real high and others just skimming the trees and some would sit down for awhile. Here are some pictures I tried to get of them. They really did not cooperate with me, they must be camera shy. I missed some really good shots, one was when 15 or 20 of them took off at one time. If you are not already pointing the camera with your finger on the button, you can’t get that shot. The following were my feeble attempts at trying to capture at least a few of them.
Now isn’t this a graceful looking bird?
Here are six of them in a tree close to the house:
A view showing a couple of trees:
And looking straight up an old tree at one that refused to move:
And some coming and going in a pine tree:
Now, if you don’t hear from me again, you know the buzzards got me. You all have a great day now, you hear?
