Blackbird Vultures

Does this cute songbird have a dark secret?

As it turns out… yes. I can’t be sure that they didn’t take down this cow and strip it in minutes leaving only this leg joint for the stragglers.

Compare this photo of them bickering over a carcass with the one from the Serengeti below.

The similarities are eery.

I don’t think I’l be taking naps near a Blackbird flock anytime soon. You’ve been warned.

    The starling seems to be regarding them warily… rightly so. You never know when they’ll turn on you.
