Wordless Wednesday...Keep Walking Larry!

 

When we were out walking this week there were two vultures hanging out on the street lights.

They’re pretty menacing looking...I always associate them with roadkill, although I’ve learned that some black vultures don’t wait to dine on already dead carrion but may hunt for live creatures. 



Keep walking Larry...we don’t want that vulture to think you’re his breakfast!

Hi Kathy Streib , I'm not sure if I've even seen a vulture and that is just fine with me. 😉

Here is East TN we have a ton of Turkey Vultures which are very annoying little creatures.  They love to eat the stuff around the windows and sunroofs of your cars.

I have never liked them, but they do clean up the roads after a random rabbit tries to outrace a car.

It is always good advice to keep on moving. 

That bird is no match for Larry, though. LOL

Kathy,

I agree with Sharon Tara comment.  In Napa, we saw many turkey vultures, they do clean up all the dead. I see them here also.  A

I have seen many a turkey vulture from time to time in our area and know to get away quickly as well.  The will attack if they sense you are a threat to their meal.

Grant Schneider we actually saw two of them but I couldn't get them together. 

Michael Jacobs I like the word menacing...it conveys what it means.

Wayne Martin if Larry had been on his old hunting lease at least he would have been packing. 

Nina Hollander, Broker what's scary is when you see them circling an area near you,

Norma J. Elkins I've never seen them do that!!! Wow!


Jeffrey DiMuria 321.223.6253 Waves Realty I was going down 95 towards Delray from Orlando years ago and there must have been 6 or 7 vultures having their morning meal by the side of the road.

Sharon Tara They look even scarier the closer you get to them. Turkey vultures are weird looking. 

Ron and Alexandra Seigel there was a turkey vulture on our back fence last week. I hope he wasn't thinking about adding our squirrels to his diet.

We have an eagle that is nesting on the American River Parkway near my home.  I have seen a picture of it posted on NextDoor, but haven't seen it myself.  Your photo of the vulture reminds me I need to go see it for myself.
