The other day my husband noticed a couple of big birds in some tall pine trees. To tell the truth, many smaller birds were not too happy about these big birds in their area. The smaller birds were clattering away and letting the big birds, which turned out to be turkey vultures, know.

The turkey vultures did not seem too concerned about them. It seemed they were more bothered by me trying to take their picture. The camera has some good zoom. I was not able to get a picture of their wingspan, which would have been kind of cool, but, oh well.

According to, turkey vultures are in all parts of North and South America. In the sky, if the wings are V shaped and the bird is gliding in a wobbly circle, it is probably a turkey vulture.

As we were watching the birds, a neighborhood cat walked by. He seemed more bothered by the clattering birds. Besides moving, he was safe.

Also a note, the turkey vultures -- at least four of them -- were in the pine trees near the funeral home.

According to, turkey vultures can be around 2-3 feet in length with a wingspan of nearly 6 feet.

Nature is nature.
