Bird of Death
I hate turkey vultures. They’re just plain ugly and when they’re around, there is usually something dead nearby. I call them the ‘birds of death’. There is a house about 2 blocks from here that has a gaggle (do they hang in gaggles?) on top of the roof on any given day. That would drive…. me…. nuts. Well today there were two on OUR roof. I politely asked hubby to use the extension pole to scare them the hell OFF of our roof. Did I mention I hate them?? They seriously creep me out. And they’re huge. HUGE! Like, medium-sized-dog huge. When we got back this afternoon, there were 2 in a tree in the backyard. So, I fought off the urge to throw something at them and, instead, grabbed the camera.
Because as much as I detest these birds, they do photograph well when they’re not just sitting there, slumped over, waiting for something to die. Ugh.
