Turkey Vultures In Flight
I do feel obligated to tell you that I brightened up these pictures just a bit. I actually didn't have to change them very much, but I thought it would bring out the detail of the birds just a bit more.
And I also have another episode of Rat TV for you! This is a continuation of yesterday's video. The last thing we saw then was where the turkey vulture flew out of the tree it was perched in. In this video we get to see where the bird went after it got in the air.
They aren't close up this time, but you can see them fly from over the trees. And after circling for a few seconds, they fly off into the horizon. I guess they were done resting because they didn't come back.
You know, when I first heard about turkey vultures, I thought they were maybe just a smaller version of the vultures I already knew about. I never believed there could be such famous creatures where I live. But these are the real thing! These are the ones I always heard about, the vultures that they sometimes make cartoons about. I remember those bald, red heads.
And I think that will just about do it for my turkey vulture posts, until I see some more. It was fun seeing them and fun sharing them. But I'll have something totally different tomorrow, but just as good. I've been seeing a lot of good things lately.
Nature Center Magazine - I've made some big changes to the website. I always planned for it to be constantly evolving. And it has taken a big step forward to becoming more of a magazine, and less of just a blog. It still remains just a fun place to help promote nature websites from around the web. And today's article is a new Free Wallpaper that you should definitely take a look at.
