Ever see one eat a snake?
I left a 4 ft rattler in the yard for the buzzards. One flew down, unzipped the snake and scooped all the "goodies" out of the hide in less than a minute. It was incredibly fast and efficient.

I call these Turkey Vultures I believe. Anyway, a guy I worked with was out Turkey hunting. Wasn’t having any luck. Bigger guy, likes to eat. He take a break & heads into town for a snack. It’s a packing house town. At the convenience store he sees two camoed up guys. He asked them if they were turkey hunting & told them he wasn’t having much luck. They didn’t speak English that well, but they told him they fared better. He asked if he could see the bird(s). They walked him over to the bed of their truck, reached in, and held up 2 Turkey Vultures/Buzzards. Have to taste like you were eating the South end out of a Northbound moose.

Funniest thing I ever saw, was driving to work one morning and about a mile from my house there is a farm with a fence that goes up a hill, about 200 yards worth. On every fence post sat a buzzard. It was early in the morning, kinda foggy and it was just eerie looking. Gave me a chuckle though, kick myself for not stopping and taking a pic.
I will say those guys are efficient though, I've had occasion to dispatch a varmint or two trying to harass my chickens, they'll clean a dead coon up in a few minutes. Even had a rabbit get caught in my fence once and die. I tossed it out of the yard and went back in the house, about 15 of them were on it in half an hour, rabbit gone in about 20 minutes.

Smile Can I play , too ?

Mother Nature does not let stuff go to waste . Maybe we humans should go back to "sky burials " and quit wasting real estate ?

Believe this! Had it happen to me.

Buzzards are our official county Bird! They do a great job

Don't think the buzzard can do this but I believe the pell-i-can.

Maybe not, but I won't be taking a chance by laying down motionless on the beach.
