Who's a pretty bird?

A group of turkey vultures congregate on a newly cut hay field near Roseburg, Ore., on Tuesday, June 14, 2011.  The turkey vulture, also know as the turkey buzzard or just buzzard, is the most widespread vulture in North and South America. The carrion eating scavenger has few natural predators. Its primary form of defense is regurgitation of semi-digested meat, a foul substance which deters most enemies.

  1. Beautiful birds. FYI, it is a venue of vultures and if they fly, it's a kettle.
