New Buzzard Lodgings....

Heading down to the local Dairy Queen a week or two ago, we notice this tower with a few buzzards perched on it.  We thought, 'No, it couldn't be...'  But when we came back by there were even more there.  And almost every time we pass there are at least a few on it.
Yesterday morn, on the way to therapy, it was body to body buzzards on these sections you see here.  By the time therapy was over, and I got home and got my camera they had started to disperse.
 This tower is right downtown in Clinton...behind the City Hall...I am hoping to get down there when lighting is better.

That's a huge bunch of Buzzards for sure... Guess they think that was built there JUST for them... Nice new home, huh????? ha

We often see these Turkey Vultures soaring or cleaning up the roadkill but I've never seen them roost like this. Amazing!

A great vantage point! Better lighting would be nice for you, but the silhouettes are nice too!

Holy Cow!! Never seen that many vultures! Good spot for them to watch over! :)

RE Fishing: Love to fish for salmon and steelhead on the snake. My husband used to fly fish the creek. Not so much anymore. One word. - otters! :( Its either the otters eat the fish, or the beavers eat the trees. And the otter eat the beaver babies!

This is totally amazing, it reminds me of the smaller birds who line up on the wires, but I have never seen a huge group of buzzards at rest. Wonder if there is something there on the ground that attracts them?

We always need to be ready to find fascinating pictures in unexpected places. I'm glad you were ready to get these photos. There must be something special about that tower.

It certainly makes me wonder what the attraction of this tower is to this many birds. Fine shooting!

Susan said...

That is amazing, I've never seen so many in one place. Ah, kinda scary.

Ellie said...

Wow that is a LOT of birds - I can only imagine the noise they must have been making.

Linda Gross said...

Wow; that's a LOT of buzzards!

Dee said...

I love finding this sort of thing. The last photo is a great silhouette. They must have just been passing through...or it is a buzzard convention.

Mary said...

Great! It is so funny to find the places they like to rest and see so many at once. Hope you get more shots of them.
