Ah, my wife will like this one! She used to have to walk by a big tree full of vultures on her way home from school We often see turkey vultures here in Arizona, I don't know why they call them that, they taste nothing like turkey!!
Wow, I always thought vultures are very shy and would stay away from people. I've seen a couple ones in CT, but they would fly away if I get closer to them. And I didn't have chance to see wild vultures in AZ, UT and NM during my visits, maybe they are avoiding National parks?
Truly , we see them often. It may seem strange to some , but they are sort of beautiful flying their wide circles and catching and riding the thermal for hours. We often have to stop to let them fly away after they have gorged themselves on some roadkill jackrabbit or even coyote.Indeed they may be avoiding the Parks, we live in a very remote and desolate area. But it's really cool you have visited here. It's like nowhere else!
