The Vultures Hover

Our house guest called yesterday as she was pulling out of the driveway to say that vultures were swooping one of the goats in the upper pasture. I ran out to see, and found them lined up on the fence across the street.

It's hard not to think of the word ominous when you see a vulture, isn't it? I finally remembered that our neighbor had told us that someone hit a deer in front of our house the other day, then came back with a gun to finish it off. The carcass was hidden behind the neighbor's fence where they were sitting. My approach startled them and they flew off to line up on the neighbor's roof.

Now this is a sight you don't want to see at your own home or nearby...

They're still hanging around today. They've been swooping our deck, and lining the fence again.

There must be something in our genes that tells us to be disturbed by this sight...

  1. Yikes!! I'd keep moving if I were you!

  2. Yeah, I'm definitely not going to be lying down in the grass anytime soon :->.

  3. What a funny foreboding picture. It reminds me of the Addams Family!
