Family Time

My, how quickly the vulture babies grow up into super large birds.  The entire family of four was hanging out on one of the back facilities walls at work today – I could only capture three in the frame of the photos from my vantage point behind the glass at the end of the hallway.  Pretty soon the young vultures will be off to scavenge the Central Texas roads for food and to serve their unique purpose in the local ecosystem.  They will probably find plenty of squirrels, armadillos, and other unfortunate creatures who failed to cross the road safely.  I find it odd that they choose to return to this one secluded spot every year.  Until next time, stay safe out there in the world.
