Social and curious sun-lovers

Black Vulture

Well, hello there! Long time no blog. We lost our beloved cat Arby on Monday after about eight weeks of slowly deteriorating health. It’s been a tough summer. I’m so ready for fall! Bring on September — which happens to start off with International Vulture Awareness Day on the 1st.

I find vultures endearing for several reasons. These pictures of Black Vultures, taken at Hontoon Island State Park back in June, show three of those reasons.

They are social.

They are curious.

They love the sun.

How are you celebrating IVAD this year? Arthur and I will visit Disney’s Animal Kingdom (the park celebrates on the 5th), as we did last year. If you can’t get enough of vultures, you’ll probably like what we’ve done over at Birdorable – check out the new Birdorable vulture landing page.

Share the birds, share the love!

    Hi Amy,
    I’m just letting you know that photos and your blog spot have been copied and pasted onto a website called:
    http://www.haltbirdbanding.com/photos.html
    If you scroll down, you will see that one of your blog photos and and quotes from your blog have been taken, insinuating abuse to birds.
    Sorry to bother you, but I thought you would want to be aware of this.
