Yesterday I took my nephew to Weldon Springs State Park in Clinton IL as it has become his favorite place to explore. We were treated to a unique sight in that a flock of turkey buzzards were perched atop the big barn of the old Nixon Farm. Was a bit unsettling having them all watch us with a wary eye.
As we neared, they all took off except for one that was not afraid though it too would eventually join its counterparts.
This barn is located off site towards the NE.
The trail we were on eventually leads back around to the large barn. Take note of the smaller Redwing Blackbirds who were very effective at keeping the buzzards in check. Any time the buzzards would make a move that didn't sit well with them, they would go on the offense. You can see this interaction in the image after this.
