We noticed a dozen or so buzzards circling last weekend. We did not think much of the comment a visitor made about a possible roost.
But by Sunday evening, when coming home from a different direction, there were hundreds of these bad boys and the idea of a roost in the area became more of a possibility. I have never seen anything like, and have not had my camera with me when the sky is full.
Then this morning, I saw a sign for an estate sale that I could not resist, so as I turned back into the neighborhood south of ours, I saw Buzzards again ...
I really need a zoom lens for my camera... But there were trees all behind these homes, lined with these flying garbage disposals. On some limbs would sit a vulture with his wings spread, soaking up the morning sun. A few were starting to venture out, looking for their next meal.
By the way, if ever a buzzard lands in your yard, leave it alone!
We have heard their defense is to throw up on the encroaching threat.
That would not be a pleasant experience . . .
I wonder what having the eaves of your home lined with buzzards
does for resale value and a quick sale?
