Fear and feathers


I was driving in Orange, TX, the other day when I came upon a flock of about 100 vultures.  Most of them were sitting in a field behind a fence. A bout 10 of though were out in the road right-of-way, trying to make a mealof a carcass by the side of the road.  The carcass was right up against the pavement, which made it a scary endavor for these feathered carnivores.  Every time a vehicle passed by, they would flee for cover and then have to brave themselves into sneaking back toward the road. The whole flock flew off before they got the meal, but I bet they came back later in the day to try again.
