Coming back from town the other day, I saw two black vultures perched on either side of someone's driveway, sitting on their pipe fence entrance. I quickly pulled over and grabbed my camera, just as the resident was pulling out of her drive. She rolled down her window and advised me that the buzzards live there (at least for now) at an old fallen-down barn and that these are babies that were hatched/raised there. She said they're almost like pets and that they look like penguins when they're little. They make for great guardians at the gate, don't you think?!
