November is Turkey Buzzard Month for me (as others are just talking Turkey). It is the time when the Buzzards return to Rainbow Creek for the winter. The "buzz" around the neighborhood is that 'brendasue's buzzards are back! As a child, I did not plan to grow up to be the 'old buzzard lady'; but that is what happened. Today I was quite happy to look up and a few buzzards are in the old buzzard tree. It is the first time I sat down just to hang out with them since last March when they left. They allow me to sit on the ground by the tree with my camera as they get busy cleaning the feathers (which takes most of their time). As you will see in the photostudy pics, it was also quite a day for sky watching with cool clouds. I do have 2 of the buzzards named-(King Buzz and JerryBuzz). I see, by looking at your photos from around the whole world, that no other person on Earth names the birds they photograph. I think it is because no other person knows a buzzard! You can see in my photo albums at the G+ Gallery, these are the same birds year after year coming to the same old buzzard tree. I do not know why in all the forest they chose this tree, but they did. I am lucky to witness these birds. I hope You will all get to know Birds. Enjoy!
