Pic #1 is a little freaky and pretty cool at the same time. I like it.:)

I thought so too with the Spanish moss hanging there. Thanks for the comments.

Interesting studies of a bird I don't see perched very often Don.
Your first image is a beautiful study in ugliness...and I mean that only in the most complimentary of ways.

Funny how such an odd but common bird brings out the unusual comments.

And two species, no less; good for you, Don. I think vultures might easily have been named the Florida state bird; I think we saw more of them down there than mockingbirds.

Nice to see these, with all the vultures disappearing these days.

Isn't that the truth. I saw 15 in one tree where these shots were taken and there were many others flying around. Thanks Al.

Well they do serve a useful purpose. Thanks for looking.

Very nice Don. I especially like the Black Vulture. Spanish moss always adds a lot to a shot, great texture.

How is the water level at Circle B? Last year the east side(left) of the fist section of marsh was completely dry. The year before water was pouring out of both pipes and the birds were all around.
