Turkey vultures

turkey vultures

I like turkey but that’s not what comes to mind when you see a turkey vulture eat dead animals. This bunch was hanging out in the Rio Grande Bosque this morning as I rode my bicycle. They weren’t looking for or sniffing out live prey but dead meat. That’s OK with me. Because of these on-duty carrion sentinels I can enjoy my ride without having to dodge decomposing animals. Let’s hear it for consumers of rotten meat.
