This is to augment the fine contest LI is running.
My vote is for Andrea McGimsey, as noted here.
Frightening! She looks like a tough old bird though.
Wrong choice, Joe. Buzzards are a devil to get rid of once you have them in your trees.
Joe, this really is brilliant, using a field guide plate!
I had a nightmare last night that I was clearing some brush in the RPA zone in my backyard and got attacked by a flock of turkey vultures!
HFTB, I’ll swap you your turkey vultures for the herd of about twelve deer I chased out of my RPA zone last night. In the middle of Sterling Park!!! Mrs. W had pointed out to me in the afternoon some lovely Fall flowers she had blooming in our RPA zone garden right next to the patio. This morning…no more lovely Fall flowers. Turkey vultures won’t eat Mrs. W’s garden.
“… herd of about twelve deer …”
I hear they are edible…
