A Killdeer, several Turkey Vultures, and a Hawk (Red-shouldered???), were all seen in the development where I live on December 4, 2013 in the late afternoon. I also spotted a large flock of birds, likely also Killdeer. The Turkey Vultures, often nicknamed “Buzzards”, were circling and soaring. There were three of these large vultures and only one ventured low in the sky.
The Hawk was perched with its back to me, in a small tree. It probably was just resting. The Killdeer was spotted along a section of the golf course fairway near the road. I sure enjoy seeing the broad variety of birds here in Marion County, Florida. More birds are on the way South. I am very interested to find out which birds I will see next.
