A Normal Vulture Post, No Poo, No Broken Windshield
When I spotted this carcass, it was covered by about two dozen vultures and one bald eagle. I pulled the JEEP off the road and parked close enough to use the JEEP as a blind. The birds all flew up and swirled overhead, but you could tell they really, really wanted to resume feeding.
Aided by a clear new windshield provided by an errant vulture and my insurance company, I sat quietly and filmed the birds as they returned to the feast.
The whining and panting you hear is Bear peering over my shoulder from the back seat as the vultures returned to the business at hand.
If you get tired of that old cliche, " When pigs fly!" you can now substitute "trees" for "pigs".
Here we see an oak about to lift off.
