You know I love birds. All kinds of birds. In Florida we have a lot of vultures, especially the black vulture. Here, one seems to be peeling the rubber from someone's windshield wiper. Tch, tch. They shouldn't have left their car alone near a vulture roost. I guess rubber makes good nesting material?

One cannot do anything about it except move your car, or chase them away. But they will return as soon as you turn your back. Turkey vultures (not pictured) have a lovely defense mechanism; projectile vomiting! Aaaakkk! Think of what they eat! I'll keep my distance!
Vultures are migrating birds. Most of them migrate to Florida from the Ohio Valley and the Atlantic Seaboard. Isn't it odd....the vultures seem to follow the "snowbirds". We have a LOT of Ohio visitors this time of year. Well, there is nothing to be done about these rubber nibblers. It's against Federal Law to kill migrating birds. Just flap your human wings and say "shoo!"
Meanwhile, up on a branch, a sweet sparrow ponders his next meal. Betcha it won't be rubber!

I'm trying really hard not to chuckle, but um, well, I DO love birds. Even vultures!
