Up Close With Carrion

Black Vulture

What’d you do on the way home from church today?  Visit grandma?  Take the kids and the dog to the park?  Get a venti latte at Starbucks and read the Sunday paper?  My kids and I stopped at a roadkilled White-tailed deer down the street from our house to watch a Black Vulture take a lunch break.  You know your kids see things a little different when someone says, “Cooool – he’s picking its brains out!”   

Now that makes a mom proud (at least birdwatching moms).  My boys are so awesome. 

(Sorry I couldn’t get any pictures, but hope you like these stock photos of this really beautiful bird.)
