THEY COULD HAVE AT LEAST MADE THE SIGNS A LITTLE CREEPIER....

7개월 전

This was NOT what I expected....


Any time I encounter vultures in the wild they remind me of death. When you see a large gathering of them, it's not uncommon to find a poor corpse of some animal nearby, so when I saw a gate covered in vultures and signs on my way to visit Jeff from Bobblehead Homestead, I expected the signs to match the message that the vultures were sending...

Maybe "No Trespassing," "Restricted Area," "Trespassers Will Be Shot," or "I'm Watching You...." While the signs may not have measured up to my expectations, the vultures were certainly photogenic enough. Here's a couple photos to check out. What would you want to see on the signs?

"TRESPASSERS WILL BE SHOT, SURVIVORS WILL BE SHOT AGAIN"

Until next time…

I've always loved vultures. They're quite gregarious, very smart, and highly social.

We had LOTS of turkey and black vultures in Florida, and there was a huge colony that roosted across the street from Eagle Park in Seminole, a couple of miles south of my home.

We also had a large population of caracaras around Yeehaw Junction, and yes, that's a real place, which I dearly loved, because we used to have one that lived with us off and on when I was a kid in California. Our boxer, Bruno, used to let him eat and drink out of his bowls.

They're absolutely gorgeous, and the caracara is the (fully feathered) vulture depicted holding a snake on the Mexican flag. Beautiful birds.

He came back later with his mate, but they were building houses below us by then, and they didn't stay. Too bad.

When we moved to Tennessee in 2011, we quickly discovered that we had a large colony of turkey vultures that roosted across the street from our house, which initially freaked out my black cat, Bear.

We had just as many in Florida, if not more, but we also had a lot more tree cover, so he didn't feel so exposed. Now he knows they're no threat, and they don't phase him. They have more than enough carrion around so they're not interested In animals that are still walking around. ;-)

"I would tell you to turn back...but it is too late!"
"If you hear a sound in the woods...it was NOT your imagination!"
"As you are reading this sign, I have crept up behind you!!!"

LOL -Nice answers! Might have to make some signs like that!

You have my permission to do so!

I'm not sure what I'd want the signs to say but I love the vultures! Cool!

Photogenic vultures... Hahah... If there was ever a vulture association, they would reward you for sure. 😊

Maybe a board like "YOU CAN ENTER BUT CAN'T LEAVE" would do the trick. Sounds sinister enough?

Love it! Great answer!

Bunch of bums standing around doing nothing. At least they don't look as ugly as the turkey vultures.
