You Know It's Winter in Florida When ...


... the buzzards come back to roost.

We have a year-round population, of course, but the numbers start swelling in December when their brethren in Ohio and Pennsylvania and other buzzardy places head south for warm weather and abundant road kill. Spotted this tree-full last weekend while cruising along the Santa Fe River. Made sure I was under the boat's canopy when we passed under the tree.

Gorgeous image.

Thanks, Rick. I happen to think buzzards are extremely photogenic and totally maligned...

That could be because they smell so bad

You'd smell bad, too, if your diet consisted primarily of way-dead possums and armadillos.

Good point.
