Fotos lindas! beijos,ótimo fim de semana!chica
Just wonder'n? You know how turkey meat makes one sleepy, do they themselves sleep alot? Hmmm? Do they snore or do they gobble when asleep? These are very important issues to think about when sitting back on one's recliner watching the turkey bowl.Hope you ate well mi amiga
Wow!!!!! Really great shots of the birds and what birds they are, kinda ugly dare I say.......Guess there Mom loves them.... Blessings Francine.
I read so much.When I see turkey again, I thought of thanksgiving.
Yikes! Look at that windspan! This is yet another kind of turkey; I think I like the kind I can eat better, but your pictures are wonderful nevertheless. :-)
Must be tough being a vulture... the name sounds terrible, not to mention their faces...
Nice picture you show - I really like the picture No. 2 where the turkeys are joined by another bird.Hanne Bente
We have loads of them here. The county tosses deer roadkills off in a specific place nearby so the custodians of Nature can do their thing and take care of business. Wonderful birds.
Excellent photographs of the turkey vultures.
Nie jestem wielkim miłośnikiem tych ptaków, ale zdjęcia podobają mi się. Pozdrawiam.I'm not a big fan of these birds, but the pictures I like. Yours.
I am never pleased when I see them scouting out an area close but I know they have a job to do. You got some great pictures Tex. Love the shot of the one sunning!
The American Black Vultures are my fave of the 2, but all are so very useful, and have purpose. The first image along pond side, is really beautiful! Happy Saturday~
Good photo's Teresa.Wish you a lovely weekend.greetings from Holland, Joop
Welcome to Tex!Fantastic photographic series.Wonderful birds, I am delighted with them.
Yikes. Great shots though. Have a super Saturday.Best wishes Molly
Wow beautiful,nice weekendCrissi
nice shots, not the prettiest of all birds, but I guess their mamma loves them all the same.
Wow, look at that wingspan . . . We have Wiid Turkey that roam the fields around here, are they considered Turkey Vultures?
Turkey vultures are pretty birds...if you don't look too closely. Love that shot of the spread wings.
Here I thought you were going to share some recipe for leftover turkey from thanksgiving. LOL These guys are ugly yet beautiful in their own way.
I saw several circling on thanksgiving morning figured they were smelling all the turkeys cooking
I'll stick with the other type of turkey leftovers.
Impressive looking birds.
I love to see them soaking up the sun with their wings spread wide!
We had turkey vultures in Washington. I love the title of your post!
I like the Bat Man shots!
I pretty much knew this wasn't going to be a recipe post. Interesting birds!
for some reason, the past few days, we have had flocks of these guys circling all over the neighborhood. and some of them their wings appear to be 4 or 5 feet when they fly over the back yard, they are so ugly on the ground and beautiful as they soar.
Wonderful shots of turkey vulture.
Ugly but necessary. Nice shots T.
These are all cool! Of course, it helps to like vultures. The tree wingspread photo is awesome!
Great shots of a bird that is necessary but not exactly beautiful. :-)
Ugly birds I've hated ever since reading the Red Pony.
I never saw a vulture alive… This one I not even heard. Good shots!
Saw some caged vultures yesterdayand it made me sad.What a difference to see them in the wildat your place.Such an impressive wing span on pics 4 and 5.
Awesome shots of a very ugly bird, ok beauty is in the eye of the beholder.They are incredible pictures..I wish all you Americans would stop talking about turkey leftovers I am craving a sandwich so bad SO I have a turkey in the oven since no one mailed me one:) B
These are great photos of a very distinctive bird. Ugly, but distinctive.I was driving to work early one morning when I was still young, and crested a hill......only to find a line of turkey vultures sitting on a fence row with wings open wide. It was an eerily awesome sight.
Luckily we dont have vultures ee in the UK. They are an awesome bird though
Wonderful birds. Nice shot of the vulture warming his body in the "horaltic pose" !
ewwww.I was looing forward to the turkey leftovers! LOLxoxo
Dearest Theresa,They make nature's cycle round... the garbage collectors of mother nature. Ugly looking birds. Hugs,Mariette
We dont have them wild here in Sweden...only on farms. Beautiful moon pictures....
Love the pose with the outspread wings!
You dont want these on your bird feeders.have a great weekend too.peter
I have a fine appreciation for these birds. They keep the roads in our neighborhood clean as a whistle.
I like the play on words in your title. Nice series. We have many wild turkeys in the woods around here. When in the road, they take their time crossing and never seem to hurry.
They are amazing critters, aren't they? Cheers from Cottage Country!
They look really sinister, but I enjoyed the post. From Findlay
I love your feathery left overs! They look like they're putting on quite a show with all the spread wings!
I wonder do they taste like chicken or turkey?
the shot of them on the ground really makes them look like thugs :)
Although they serve a purpose, seeing them used to make me nervous, wondering what had met an unfortunate demise.
Cool shots! I like the ones with the Black Vulture in with the Turkey Vultures.
They are definitely something only a mama could love!!!Theresa, I won't be blogging for the next few weeks due to John being sick, but I'll still be visiting. Have a good weekend.
Great shots!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.
Turkey vultures...amazing birds. Fine shots. Usually they are very far away so hard to photograph.. Turkey vultures nest here so are very secretive. they've found that old abandoned buildings work well...house attics
They may not be the prettiest birds, but they are needed. They're like the garbagemen of the bird world. :)
Funny! I only like them when they are flying high. :)
Bet those guys would clean up the left-over leftovers. Great shot of those wings.
Doing Nature's clean up work
het zijn wel mooie vogels.
Vultures are fascinating birds. Nice series.
One can say, they're ugly, but, I think that they are beautiful.
Hi Theresa, Those sure are near Zapilotes! I sure do like any and all buzzards! Have a wonderful weekend!
Sorry to have misspelled the word - should definitely be Zopilotes not Zapilotes. Sorry. My Spanish is about as good as my eyesight at the moment. Ha!
Are they not the scariest lookin bird there is... Holy cow! LoL! =0
Cute, Theresa.. I put a picture of a turkey from Cades Cove on Facebook yesterday--with this explanation: "Tee Hee Hee... I'm safe--and YOU can't eat me!! (Protected in Cades Cove).... ha ha Hugs,Betsy
Goodness, so interesting to see these birds up close. Great photos!
Haha. Not the most attractive of birds!
Actually saw them up close here in Philly!!! Quite a surprise:@)
I do not recall seeing them with a grey head, are those the females? While they do perform a useful duty, they are quite nasty looking.
Nasty looking these guys and gals.Great shots though.
Okay, so maybe I am weird, I like vultures...great shots!
isn't their wing span gorgeous?
Fantastic photos Tex!But so ugly birds!!!Dimi..
Huh! I didn't know there was a black vulture in addition to the turkey vulture. Guess they don't mind sharing space. Nice shots.
Vultures are so cool!!
One day, the Pres & I watched some "BVs" perch in one our tallest trees but I didn't want them to begin roosting there so we sent in the dogs!...:)JP
yay for the vultures!when i see them i know there be bones nearby!! =)nice pond visitors!
oooohhhh i was thinkin' "food" pictures!!i see lot's of turkey vultures and only occasionally do i see vultures. they are a rare sighting in these parts!!
Give me the old fashioned turkey leftovers, please. But great captures of some LARGE birds!!
Those guys are all about the leftovers aren't they? Nice pictures, fun to see both species together.
When we see any kind of birds like these circling over we start checking for a dead cow or calf.
They are dignified in their way. Wonderful photos.
These are the best turkey leftovers I've seen all day!
Glad I'm not the only one who thinks Vultures make great subjects!!
Poor things... they got left out in the looks department! LOL
interesting bird indeed
Those open wing shots are awesome!
How can people say these creatures are ugly? Beautiful black birds :)
Have not seen one ! thank you !
Cover your eyes!!! You are so witty! "Turkey lefovers...turkey vultures, that is"...I hear the song from The Beverly Hillbillies in my head now.
I hope they don't get Mr. Squirrel.
Great captures. What an amazing bird!
Any vulture could win an Ugly Bird award!These are no exception.You can have these guys!Cheers,Jo, Stella and Zkhat
huge birds! good snaps!
Cool shots of the Turkey Vultures! I guess they do not have to worry about being Thanksgiving dinner.
These Turkey vultures remind me of Bustards that live up on the frontier of Portugal and Spain..Just like Vultures.. i somehow dont like them.But still a great shot Tex.happy sundayval
Great shots, especially the ones in the tree! :)
Those are such ugly birds! They kind of creep me out, LOL.
Aren't they just the strangest birds? We had about 25 that hung around town all last summer - they perch in a treetop close to our house.
I love how these birds mingle together. Black vultures have been spotted here. I saw them at around 50 around a carcass. Amazing creatures!
Great captures! I love watching turkey vultures - we have an abundance here although I've never seen the black vulture except in photographs.Thanks for all your comments today. We've been gone and have a busy week ahead, so I'm trying to play catch up as I can. Hope you and yours had a wonderful Thanksgiving. :-)
Nice blog i got your blog url while reading on some travel blog. It was worth visit great photo collectionBudget Hotels in Ooty
I'm familiared with these vultures, have seen many in Central America.
now this is a funny post
Poor ugly critters... It is so hard to like them.. but they are necessary!
Wonderful shots....specially the one with the wings spread out!
I used to see turkey vultures all the time in Pennsylvania but I've never seen one in Texas.
It's a fantastic birdlife you have.As always, lovely picture!This morning there was a deer and the stag was after her in the yard, 5 meter from the house. And of course the camera was not ready.For a months ago I also have a wolf in my yard but he is not here now. Thanks for that, beacuse I don't want to have him here when I have dogs.We have rain, rain and more rain here in Gothenburg now. i belive that the weather is bether in your place.Regards from MICKAN
Your post title made me laugh. Too funny.
These are great Theresa. Ive never seen a Vulture of any kind!
Love the tree picture with spread wings. They're quite pretty from the neck down! Won't be making a sandwich out of these leftovers!
