Camera Critters 2

Misty Dawn is doing a Sunday Camera Critters where you post photos of animals. Check it out.

It was a dark dismal morning last Sunday and I saw four Turkey Vultures sitting in a tree. It was hard because of the distance and lighting but I tried. This is my best close-up.

WOW! My post is of Turkey Buzzards too! What a coincidence! I love the shot of them sitting in the tree. Mine were on the roof of my barn.

I don't think i have ever seen turkey vultures before. I like them sitting in the tree too. My critter is here if you want to check him out.

Oh another set of buzzards. Where do you all live that you have buzzards like this. They sure are ugly arn't they?

What an ominous photo! Very cool!

Those fat black birds with the red lips (beaks) sure are grotesque looking. We once saw around 35 turkey vultures sitting on the roof of a condo in Rehobath Beach, Delaware. That was a very ugly sight. And two weeks ago we saw a turkey vulture attacking a deer carcass alongside the road of interstate #66.

I really had to search for that fourth one.

Katney said...

We don't get those here. How amazing the variety of birds there are. These are strange ones.

Paulie said...

WOW! They are pretty fat huh? Good catch! I like the way your photo looks. . .

what a coincidence that I visited you today: a turkey vulture that was eating something in a ditch almost ran into my car. the wing span was HUGE. thank goodness i was going slow because it was one of those bad vermont dirt roads. What a beauty. If not for the windshield i could've touched it. and of course, i had the camera but it was all zipped up. You did good with these photos!

Thanks for stopping by my blg. It is amazing how you were able to catch those birds all together.
