Sunday buzzard blogging

Coragyps atratus, aka Black Vulture. Black vultures, along with the red-headed Turkey Vultures, make up the ”buzzard” collective around these parts. To say they are plentiful is an understatement; they are in fact, legion, and it’s not uncommon to hear people complain about them. Not me: buzzard job #1 is eating dead things, primarily roadkill. My daily commute is up and down a torturous, hilly ranch road and I see these guys at work every day. They do an excellent job and thank goodness they’re here. One local cafe uses the buzzard as its logo- I really want one of those coffee cups.

The meal du jour on this occasion was a recently deceased armadillo.
