The best view I ever had of a Turkey Vulture was in SD when I was driving from Hot Springs to Edgemont.
It was in the road, presumably scavenging, and showed a marked reluctance to fly as I approached.
I slowed right down and off he went in his own time, affording me a wonderful view.
It was what is known in ornithological circles on this side of the Atlantic as a big bugga.

I saw a road kill bald eagle recently. They love the scraps of dead critters so I guess it makes sense. (shitloads of bald eagles around here now so don't freak out.)

Used to see a lot of vultures when we fished in southern Delaware. They were especially dense around the big chicken farms of Purdue and Tyson. If they were eating roadkill and saw us coming, they would waddle to the shoulder of the road and glare at us while we went by. I always thought if they could they would fold their wings like an angry schoolmarm folds her arms.

Yesterday, on my way home, I saw like ten or more buzzards circling over the old folks home down the road.

Had a private chuckle at that.

I see what you did there...

Living with nature often means trying to avoid running into it... getting tougher, too.
It's a jungle out there so be careful, the fender you save may be your own.




Hooray for us, hooray for you, PA jumped from 5 to 2, go team!



I knew they were working together.

Is that 1 in 85 drivers will hit a deer in a year?

I only personally know one person who has hit a deer. He's actually hit two of them, and he lives in PA. I'm aware that it happens, but I would have thought it it was much rarer than 1 in 85.

Or is that 1 in 85 accidents involves a deer?

It must be 1 in 85 accidents involves a deer. That sounds more in line with my observations.

I have a friend in Doylestown PA who drives A LOT! He has personally hit at least three. His wife one and he tells me frequently about people hitting them - we have a standing joke about venison jerky...

Oh, I hit one in DE when I was 16 and my daughter hit one a few years ago.

I've hit two. The PA Game Commission is utterly incompetent when it comes to controlling deer population.
