I was sitting on the patio the other day and noticed several Turkey Buzzards (a.k.a. Turkey Vulture) circling above.
When they landed on my neighbor's house I could the pass the opportunity to grab my camera and take a few photos, but...
I decided to go back into the house post haste when it dawned on me that they had turned their eyes in my direction.
According to Wikipedia:
The Turkey Vulture is a scavenger and feeds almost exclusively on carrion.
It finds its food using its keen eyes and sense of smell, flying low
enough to detect the gasses produced by the beginnings of the process of
decay in dead animals. In flight, it uses thermals to move through the air, flapping its wings infrequently. It roosts in large community groups.
