What are you putting out in the feeders for the turkey vultures?

I think those vultures were waiting for me to fall down and break a leg, S.C.

The first typically happens at least once on one of these hikes...it's really steep, and you have a choice of rocks or fallen leaves to step on as you head up or down mountain.

So far, they haven't had the luck of the second...

Turkey is overrated.

I assume Turkey Vultures only eat dead turkeys, so, Thanksgiving leftovers?

Is that a ghostly orb in photo #5?

Yes, and a sun orb in picture 2.

There's a distinct lack of god-thanking in your captions. I'm not sure if I approve. :(

I love the rock in the Rock 3 picture.
