Got to tell you that I enjoyed every second of the drama-the sound of the wings, fantastic.
Now the only thing that troubled me was: did you just happen to have a dead rat in your pockets to lure them in?
In the freezer. It was fresh dead. Frozen, thawed. The water rat had an unfortunate encounter in the pond. Nature is a bit rough. We gathered it up. Froze it for the turkey vulture at the wildlife rescue, but he is afraid of rats. Who knew?
So the local birds can enjoy as they would have benefited originally.
…and there I was picturing you as a mad old lady with pockets full of dead rodents. Phew!
That rat wasn’t going to fit in anybody’s pocket. Fat rat.
But hey, you never know what’s in pockets or freezers.
They left in a hurry. Did something scare them off?
Vultures spook easily, and it is best to get out of the way especially when feeding on roadkill.
That was totally awesome! Were you sitting there with the camera? I still find those birds spooky.
Excellent video! The sound of the birds wings flapping in the wind is very cool.
Impressvie vulture video with awesome sound. Thanks for the “like” on Tea Time. Marian
Very cool! I just got a pic of a turkey vulture sitting in a tree – he was suspicous of me the whole time!
They are pretty suspicious by nature. Now is nesting and pre-nesting time. They do not build a nest, they use existing shelter. In some areas, they even nest on the ground.
The ones in our area are secretive when entering their nest, I can only catch them with a camera setup. If I am watching in person, they stay clear.

I love the placement of the camera right at their level.
I set a gopro hero3 out and watched from a window. I used the wifi feature to activate the camera from my ipad.
I like the angle, too, but it has to be triggered remotely, they won’t come in to check out dead things with a person there.
