I saw something the other day I've never seen before...turkey vultures landing in an open field for no apparent reason and in close proximity to people. The vultures didn't do anything after landing other than sit and there was no rotting carcass to feast on. They came in one at a time over the course of about five minutes until there were nine or ten of them on the ground. The comical part about it was each vulture was harangued on the way in by the local grackle thugs. It was akin to watching hang gliders try to harass B-1 bombers. The vultures sat around looking at each other for about fifteen minutes and then suddenly all flew off together.
