Windowpane Wednesday: Boo! Shoo!

Occasionally, we have buzzards (or vultures) descend on our property. It isn’t that they prefer us: we see them in other folks’ yards in the neighborhood.  Most of the time, they’re on the ground, but I have seen them on roofs and even deck railings……ugh.

Do you know the proper term for a group of buzzards?  I took this from the internet site “BirdFact” : “The term or name for a group of vultures varies depending on where they are, although the generic term is a flock. When they are flying in formation, they are referred to as a kettle. When they are resting in a tree or on the ground, vultures are called a committee, and whilst feeding, they are known as a wake.”

So, a few days ago, we had a COMMITTEE of vultures in our yard. And as unsightly as it was, I snapped a rather appropriate Halloween week picture through our bedroom window:

Yes, that ‘committee member’ was perched on a small pumpkin we had placed in our flowerbed.

“BOO”…. I mean “SHOO”!!
