Default This is why I like where I live

The view as I am on the forum. My wife left some leftover food in the fridge so when I got home from the Philly Show I could feed our friends. Many times there are committees. This is a single bird wake out in the lawn, near the driveway. It is much more clear in person, of course.

A group of vultures is called a committee, venue or volt. In flight, a flock of vultures is a kettle, and when the birds are feeding together at a carcass, the group is called a wake.

Nice, but too urban for me. I'm more of a country kind of guy

I had a bit of a mole problem in my yard that I was ignoring. Then this guy shows up. (notice the owl on the corner of my neighbors barn).

You ARE Lucky, Larry. I wish our hawks would concentrate on the moles, chipmunks, and tree rats (squirrels, in polite society) and leave the birds alone. Not worried about the koi as much, since they are probably too big for the hawks to pick up at this point. And "Big Fatty" would probably eat one of the hawks if it was close enough anyway.

Spectacular view, Josh. When do the training wheels come off?

I'm loving this thread everyone! I don't have a picture to add at the moment - but I have 2 acres in South Florida (a lot for down here) and wouldn't have it any other way. Both my wife and I have to drive 30+ minutes to work everyday, but I'd go insane if I lived amid the hustle and bustle!

I also have a pole barn that I have begun to expand and close in. It was 25 ft x 30 ft to begin, and will be 25 ft x 45 ft when it's finished. It's my "little project". I'm not even sure what I'll use it for - probably half cedar-smellin' workshop and half cedar-smellin' man cave.

I just learned more about vultures in the last 30 seconds than I have in 50 years. Cool stuff.

Same here, man, but make mine 30 instead of 50.
