While driving up to my sons, a few klm's north of here, I saw a huge bird on the side of the road eating road kill. As I past I realized it was a Turkey Buzzard. I went back but it flew up into the forest. Can you see him? How many times would one drive by and never see him sitting as he is?
He has seen me, I don't want to spook him.
Let me bring him a little closer.
The Turkey Buzzard is a scavenger and feeds almost exclusively on carrion. It finds its meals using its keen vision and sense of smell, flying low enough to detect the gasses produced by the beginnings of the process of decay in dead animals.
