The Buzzards Were Circling
April 30, 2016, Camp Verde, Arizona. A dead jackrabbit on the driveway of the house I was staying in drew the attention of circling turkey vultures. One came to the ground to inspect, but didn't get too close. It rejoined its colleagues in the air, and the circling continued for at least 15 minutes. A neighbor removed the jackrabbit for my friend, and the buzzards moved off. I was able to get a few photos and make a little video, which I've set to Gabriel Fauré's Pavane in F sharp minor, Op. 50.
