    Bizarre

    A few days ago we got up early to visit the local cemetery (we are now in the Rio Grande area of TX). I found a reference that this was a good place to look for birds. As we pulled up I commented on a large bird resting on a stump, inquiring if it was a hawk? Turns out it was a vulture. Looking up we realized there were HUNDREDS of vultures in the surrounding trees.... how apropos! There were a myriad of other birds too. It was really something to see! We had a blast. Now, who can say that while visiting a cemetery?

    Interesting! We have turkey vultures that migrate in winter and return in the spring each year. They do amazing work in cleaning up animal carcasses from various causes throughout the warmer seasons. I wonder if this is where they migrate to spend the winter?

    Yeah, I always thought they headed to Texas and Mexico, so that would make sense.
