Turkey Vulture

“WHO’S a pretty bird!?! Who’s a pretty BUUURD!?!” Seriously, I’m asking, have you seen any pretty birds around here? Haha! Poor old ugly Turkey Vultures! I was exploring a heron rookery at the Weaver Family Nature Reserve, a NICHES Land Trust property on the Wabash River, when I scared up a dozen Turkey Vultures. They weren’t happy about being awakened from their afternoon naps and showed their disapproval by circling me slowly until I left. I wasn’t scared. Oh, and I never did find those pretty birds in the rookery.
