All this Turkey Vulture wanted to do was get a quick drink out of the rainfall pond across the street here. No, the small group of about five crows would not have it. The crows ganged up on the poor vulture and off all flew. It sounded like the battle that happens when the crows chase the neighborhood Red-shouldered Hawk! Lots of noise and commotion. In the end, the carrion- eating vulture was the loser and has left the area – for how long, we won’t know. I took these pictures on Sept. 28, 2014.
