(Big) Chicken Coming Home to Roost

Around here, we often see turkey vultures soaring high in the sky. But in all the time we’ve lived in Vermont, we’ve had only one chance to observe these birds at closer range.

Until yesterday when I looked out a big window on the northwest side of our house to see this huge mass of feathers perched on the very top of a dead tree.

These are really BIG birds. Just take a look at those talons!
