Turkey Vulture ( Juvenile )
Why are hairdressers never late for work?
Because they know all the short cuts!
Interesting Fact: Outside of the breeding season, Turkey Vultures form roosts of dozens to a hundred individuals. When Turkey Vultures court, pairs perform a “follow flight” display where one bird leads the other through twisting, turning, and flapping flights for a minute or so, repeated over periods as long as 3 hours. Migrating flocks can number in the thousands. At carcasses, several Turkey Vultures may gather but typically only one feeds at a time, chasing the others off and making them wait their turn. Despite their size, Turkey Vultures are often driven off by smaller Black Vultures, Crested Caracaras, Zone-tailed Hawks, and other species.

Love the title. I cracked up when I saw the pic and “wazzup” under it.
When I was viewing my photos and came across this one, Wazzup was the first thing that popped into my head. So I use it and it worked perfectly. Thank you very much for stopping by and I am really glad to see that you enjoyed my work. Happy Blogging! 🙂
I am an avid backyard bird watcher. This is interesting info on turkey vultures … though I shall not venture close to vultures … ooohhh … they make my skin crawl! Love, love, love your title !! jan
They are quite creepy, Thank you very much for stopping by and sharing your thoughts with us. Happy Blogging! 🙂
Is the picture not of a mature Black Vulture (Coragyps atratus)?
They look very similar when they are juvenile. He was actually there with his mom, brothers and sisters they were all not full grown yet. Only the mother was big. It just looks full grown because I have nothing in this photo to compare the size to. Thank you very much for stopping by and taking the interest in my post. Happy Blogging! 🙂
Okay…when my grandchildren were younger we had a book or two of questions such as the ones you present. My question is, do you have reference books or are these your creative work at play? I do appreciate the questions and the answers…smiles such as these are so much needed today. Thank you for sharing portraits of nature as well as moment of laughter.
You are very welcome, I am really glad to see that you enjoyed my work. Sorry it took me so long to get back to your comment , but I have been a little busy. To answer your question, through many years family and friends been telling me jokes. A lot of them I remember and some come back to me when I see something. But also some of them I get from the internet. Thank you very much for stopping by and taking an interest in my post. Happy Blogging! 🙂
