Turkey Vulture Rest Stop, originally uploaded by bloomingpink.
That's what I would call this tree (and a few others in the immediate vicinity) if I could name it.
We see hundreds of these very large vultures roosting (resting, hunting, gathering?) very often on our way to walk or run in White Clay Creek - Indian Town.
It's always a creepy sight to behold that many very.large.birds.
I kept a pretty close eye on Oliver whilst I was stomping closer to get a decent picture. I know they don't typically eat living creatures, but wasn't sure if they are not also opportunistic.
And he's a little guy. And probably tasty.
