An ugly visitor

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!

    Road kill…yup! The best food for those critters!

    There’s something about buzzards roosting nearby that gives me the creeps! But I enjoy watching them flying/gliding way up in the sky.

  5. Always made me nervous to see them. Especially when we have baby calves around.

    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. :/

    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!

    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.
