As Turkey Day is rolling in tomorrow, there is a bunch of 'turkey talking' going on. Tonight, I am going to show You one "Turkey" that will not be cooked and served by any human! I am talking about the Turkey Vulture and/or Turkey Buzzard.
These birds may have turkey in their name, but they are not Turkeys. Buzzards are Birds of Prey. To the World, they are known as the cleanup crew. They eat animals that have died in the fields or roads. (More info. below). Thanksgiving just happens to be the time of year the buzzards migrate back to Rainbow Creek and my Bird Sanctuary. They will be in and out of my trees now until March when they migrate to new hunting ground. I found some photos in my G+ Albums of these same birds going back a few years and I have shared them below. If you ever get a chance to know these birds, you will discover not only are they very smart, they are so funny also! Enjoy!
