When a buzzard visits your yard,
first make sure you are still breathing (and maybe get moving a little faster!).
Then, you might want to check if you need a shower??
Or … skip those and
make Pig-farmer dispose of the road-kill raccoon that ended up in the yard.

Ick! I saw two buzzards on a neighbor’s deck railing this morning….that’s just a little too close!
hahaha so funny 🙂
Now that the carcass is gone …. it’s funny! 😉
Road kill…yup! The best food for those critters!
Nasty job, but they seem to fill a purpose.
There’s something about buzzards roosting nearby that gives me the creeps! But I enjoy watching them flying/gliding way up in the sky.
Agreed! Watching them play in the wind drafts is interesting … but that’s as close as I want them. 🙂
Always made me nervous to see them. Especially when we have baby calves around.
Exactly … you just have to search around to find what it is that they are interested in! Not a good day for a nap on the deck. 😉
I wonder why folks are nervous around them. I think they are absolutely gorgeous birds! We have Turkey Vultures here. All birds are fascinating. Vultures have a place in nature too! I am sorry about the raccoon though.
Their heads aren’t pretty, to me, anyway. Plus, knowing what they are eating …. whooooooooooo!
Don’t worry, Mr. Turkey Vulture will take care of the raccoon. Turkey vultures are my favorite bird. The only bird with a sense of smell. (They also pee on their legs to help stay cool.) Gotta love them!
Didn’t know they stayed cool THAT way! They have to smell nasty…
They are amazing birds, and not the prettiest to look at. I liked your thoughts, I’ve considered those things myself when I’ve seen a flock hanging around.
They do have a nasty job; so I guess I should be thankful they do it!
