While out taking a drive on Sunday Hubby and I came across some vultures overhead with a murder of crows endlessly chasing them. Watching and listening to the crows you begin to see why the term murder seems appropriate. The vultures would fly one way and then the next and it was hard keeping up with them and I was trying to do this from the car window knowing if I got out the show would be over. I never did get a photo of the pesky cawing crows. They were way too fast.
They aren't the prettiest of the birds of prey and my photos aren't as sharp as I'd have liked; but I did enjoy watching them soar overhead and glide in the updrafts along the windy ridge.
Since this is Halloween week and vultures seem the perfect subject for celebrating it I took this last photo of the vulture barely in frame and included a little Halloween fun for you.
