Buzzards are a common enough sight over the hollow.
For over a decade it was the bigger turkey vultures we would see on a near daily basis, until the black buzzards spread up from the south like armadillos. While six or seven are often together in the sky, there’s been four particular individuals hanging around close for a couple weeks.
These four will hang around the barn, but today they followed this one to a different location.
I wonder if this is the boss as the other three followed it to some oak trees by the spring.
Three of the four buzzards landed in this dying white oak.
The fourth landed on this big oak up on the hillside.
This one was quite interested in what I was doing.
The buzzard with the Elvis hair was more nonchalant.
