Vultures do eat something besides carrion.
Hubby spotted this Turkey Vulture out in the field the other morning and I grabbed the camera, had to go back and get the tripod because I had to zoom in and couldnt hold still enough, especially with the cat trying to help. We have quite a few of these birds here in our little valley.
He did all kinds of contortions to get at that apple!
It was funny to watch. Never have we seen one do this.
He even carried it around some too.
Must have tasted good.
Interesting looking birds. There is a petty green sheen on those brown feathers.
They must be artists at eating what is available at the time.
Not the handsomest of birds, by any means.
And he ruffles his wings, stretches out that six plus foot wingspan, and takes off for other pastures.
One day vulture spotted something on the ground.
Nothing good had been found to eat that day.
This round yellow thing smelled intriguing.
So he decided to give it a try,
and it rolled all over while he tasted it.
Hmm not to bad, different.
Thats enough, time to go find some real food.
The moral of this fable? dont all fables have a moral? LOL
maybe: Eat what you can when you can.
or : Always do the unexpected.
Any other good morals?
