Buzzards!

Camera Club's assignment for June is, American Flag—tattered and torn. Since I don't have a picture, Fergus and i went for another ramble through the countryside. I did find a flag, but I won't post it until after Wednesday in case someone is practicing the art of espionage.

I did see a cardinale, a bluebird, and a few doves. Will I be posting pics of those? Nope. They were all too fast for me. Instead I will be posting pics of one of the few birds I seem to be able to get in front of my lens.
 As I drove up toward Lerna, I saw buzzards on the roof of this shed.
 This one...
 ...and that one...
...and these two. Ugly old things don't you think?

Great shots - buzzards are something we don't see in our neck of the woods.

Amazing shots of them!

I have always liked vultures. They have their own "pretty"! :)

I take lots of photos of empty sky in my unending quest to get bird shots. We don't have anything like those buzzards in England, the kind we do have are far more timid and you tend to only see them hovering high up in the sky.

Mom thinks they're the ugliest birds - even more so than Muscovy duckies.

We see these too...sometimes, a lot!! But I still like 'em. They're part of our ecosystem and a 'must' to keep carrion cleaned up.

thanks for linking. Fabulous images, really!!!!

Not the most handsome birds, that's for sure.

There is never a shortage of these ugly things around here.
