Squirrel mortality

Because pecans have been bountiful, squirrels have been dying. They just can't resist crossing the street to get to the good trees, and this has been a very good year for pecans, even in our yard, and even with the better bearer gone. So there's lots of work for the carrion-eaters. This year the black vultures have moved in. Nearly always we see a turkey vulture on the pole, but this year two black vultures have been taking turns knocking one another off this fabulous vantage point. Black vulture information was fullest on a Georgia bird site, but the best pictures were taken in Texas.
