Buzzards or Vultures along with Common Crows are natures “Clean-up Crew”. That is a fact of life that is occasionally played-out here in the wide-open spaces where cattle pastures meet ponds and lakes. I don’t know what the birds had found but certainly like all of us, they have to eat too. The Crows come in small groups of four or five with one or two staying up in the trees while the others eat in the grass. The Turkey Vulture showed up yesterday and just flew a circle above the cow pasture and then flew up into the clouds and away. I took the picture of the Crows on Jan. 1, 2013 from my porch and the picture of the Vulture on Jan. 6, 2013. Additionally, I took several pictures of the Crows on Jan. 16, 2013 through my living room window. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.
