This flock of Black Vultures was running towards a meal on the highway we were traveling along, when I quickly snapped the pictures. I took these pictures through the windshield of our pick-up truck as we drove past. I took these pictures on Wednesday, October 29, 2014, a few miles from my home.
The more commonly seen Turkey Vultures (red face and brown feathers), and these Black Vultures, are nature’s clean-up squad and often can be found eating dead critters that have been hit by cars on the roads.
