Nothing to See Here, Carrion…
Just a couple pictures of the house across the street from mine. Our neighbor is not the youngest of widows, so when I happened to see a whole bunch of turkey vultures roosting on her roof (with many more in the trees next to the house), it was hard for my fears to not get the best of me. You really hardly ever see a flock of turkey vultures unless they are swooping over carrion – and I don’t think I’ve ever seen a bunch sitting on a suburban roof before. It was sort of odd.
But rest assured, our neighbor (and her dog) were seen alive and well later that morning.
2019 Update: The dog has died.
