Yesterday I posted my favorite bird, the roseate spoonbill. Today has to be one of the least favorite.

They are rather ugly and honestly becoming a bit sinister in some parts of their habitat. While the Turkey Vulture uses its sense of smell to find food. The Black Vulture uses its eye sight. However they have started to hunt small or very young livestock/animals in places like Kentucky back across to the Carolinas.

Yes, in our area I've noticed the sandhill cranes have to really protect their young.

Don, you sure captured them well in flight!  Their wing span is quite large.

Thanks. That large wing span is what allows them to stay aloft circling their prey with very little effort.
