While digging around an old barn yesterday, I found these little guys. Baby Turkey Vultures, to me they are so cute.
The mother has her babies here every year. Just wanted to share their cuteness with everyone. 😍😍

You are absolutely correct. I've never have taken these little guys, nor have I ever killed or possessed any part of them or their eggs. People don't realize how very important they are & that they keep all kinds of diseases from spreading among the wild. I love to advocate for them. πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Yes, thanks for sharing the little darlings.
Beauty really is in the eye of the beholder. I love them all, the babies as well as the mother. A lot of people don't know the babies are all white until they grow up. Here are a couple pics of mommy.

I really like the black headed kind. There were two scrawny looking fledglings at a ramshackle house in the woods near me. I didn't see the parents and they were at that awkward "can we fly?" stage. I went to Wallymart and bought some Tilapia fish and put it out for them. I suppose they got them. Or maybe a raccoon, but you gotta try.

Nice pictures of the mother.
I'm not sure really about them.
Reasons being is that most times I go out, I see a shadow.
I look up and sure enough there's one soaring around over my head.
I'm convinced that they know something I don't.
A buddy said "Don't worry about them, they're everywhere."
Sure-sure, I believe you.🀣

Try moving around some, pepper, and they will stop circling your head.
