Carryon Birds

Recently when a opossum was killed by a motorist on my street, a good number of scavenger birds descended and made short work of consuming the corpse.

Most unusual was the five or six turkey vultures that appeared to feast on the roadkill. While I often see crows, along with the occasional raven, this was the first time that I had ever seen turkey vultures on my suburban street.
