They're back!

Friday, June 16, 2006


The Turkey vultures, those Fugly Beggars, are back and thick as thieves! (Left). The one on the right (left) repeatedly made that spread wing display. Unfortunately I couldn't get a look from the front 'cause that put the sun directly behind them. I never did get a good enough look to figure out if this was a male courting. The other one was definitely a female.

That picture on the upper right is the best I can do with the tools at hand. That is almost certainly Ospring III and if it is she's (I've declared it female since I own them and nobody I know can dispute whatever I declare) now able to fly (a bit shakey but better than I'd expected so it may be II). Too lightly colored to be one of the more mature family members.

To wildly switch topics, here's a news item from (from the AP) that falls into the "you just can't make this stuff up" category. Naked man takes 'risk', gets shot at. Women are wierd!

I guess I'm lucky she said "yes" on the first try.

I took mine to mine to a beautiful spot high atop a large rock and then gave her an offer she couldn't refuse.

Why do women get tied up with nutballs who hide naked in the bushes? And what's with the guy wit da gun? Whassup wit dat? He's running away, Bubba! You pulled out your .40 cal, you scared the shit outta him, he's got all three legs in gear headed the other way, whattaya doin' shootin' at him? And what's a girl doin' hangin' out with such a bozo?
