Vultures at Play

This has been the scene every morning for the past couple weeks at the school where I work:

We think they've been showing up because the school is right next to the Interstate highway and there is a lot of roadkill, but when I told Ula about the vultures, her answer was, "Didn't you ever wonder what happened to all those children who were asked to leave the school?"

Those are cool pictures. We have alot of vultures in our area. Theres one female who nests in the same spot every year under a ledge in a rocky area that we like to climb around on. If you get too close while she's there with a baby, you get the crap scared out of you by a yelling/hissing mama vulture!

Wow...I've never seen vultures up close before. They look huge!

ROFLOL at Ula's comment!

I've never seen a vulture in "real" life before. Just in Snoopy and Ice Age...that's about it, lol.

Do the kids dare play on the equipment with the vultures there? Or do the vultures leave when the kids get to the playground?

The vultures fly away when the kids go out to play.
