A Mourning Dove has nested in the hanging basket on our front poarch. We have placed a cardboard blind between the nest and the door we use to enter and exit the house. Momma Bird is not flying away every time we open the door.
A vulture doing what vultures do. An unfortunate rabbit was hit by a car and the vulture was "cleaning up." Vultures are amazing. They can eat spoiled meat and not get sick. Scientists are studying them to find out why/how to try to help people not get sick when spoiled meat is consumed. Vultures also have black feet. However, their urine is so acidic that it turns their legs/feet white with a bleaching effect. This is to kill germs they pick up from the carrior they land on.
