I’m sure the vulture sitting there beside the deer
is eager to devour his meal,
launch red head first into the feast,
but he’s just sitting beside the prize,
to shy to dine ‘neath
prying eyes flying by on the highway,
hoping with futility for privacy to eat his meat.
This was the first vulture we’ve ever seen in the wild. It looked like this one.
A descriptive write, I liked this, the privacy required to eat our food may be somewhat different to a vulture… but I am open to the idea.
He was just sitting there, nonchalantly watching the traffic in the square formed by body and legs. There was a decided, “Drive on by, folks. Nothing to see here” attitude about the scene!
It’s good thanks i enjoyed the picture.
Our turkey vultures are also rather skittish about human “competition” for roadkill.
Looks like what we saw was a turkey vulture! http://countrytraveleronline.com/2013/05/02/oregon-has-but-one-native-vulture/
