Not what everyone wants to see, but you do get a good look at some Turkey Vultures!

I love rabbits, which made me hesitant to watch this. But glad I did because I've never observed turkey vultures up close. There really is a pecking order -- the dominant one gets a solo meal while the other two patiently wait (except for the one sneaking a bite). And seeing the huge wing span when the one stretches out his wings. Interesting, Bart, thank you!

I love rabbits too wildflowers27, and I wish it were otherwise, but for some things to live (including humans), other things have to die. This little rabbit had been dead for a couple of days before the turkey vultures found it. I had seen it in the road a couple of mornings before, and I knew that most likely, it would not go to waste. Did you know that the turkey vulture has a well developed sense of smell which is unusual among birds? Everything has it's place and role in the grand design!!!
