Common behaviour......though this was the first time I'd observed it

Spotted last week along Hwy. 25

Quite a sight.......very creepy looking from a distance  :shock:  :D

I have seen similar behaviour from a turkey vulture on the east side of highway 6 about 10 minutes north of the town of Durham....same tree on several occasions...I assume it was the same bird....striking sight.
