Along the same lines as Andy's post, yesterday, 4 March, we saw eight Turkey Vultures huddled in a bare tree at McGee Creek on the east side of Hwy 395. Red, bald heads, large, black and ungainly. What an odd sight to see these 'warm-weather' birds in a vast plain of snow. It was four degrees F at 9AM.
