Just wanted some bread, most likely. If only two, you're probably okay. If there were 15-20, somebody hung a leg in the panels out of view.

Am I missing something here as these look like Turkey Vultures to me and if so, I've never heard of them doing anything but cleaning up already dead animals


High fence, low fence, no fence, it really doesn't matter as long as you're hunting!

Black head buzzards feed on live animals (babies) especially. I have had red heads more referred to as Turkey buzzards get after baby calves and seen them after baby deer also You can get a Federal permit to shoot them harassing your newborn calves and stock

Never seen Turkey Buzzards actively seek out a living food source. Black Buzzards...I can't say, but I do know they are a much more aggressive acting bird.

Not saying it doesn't happen (Turkey Buzzard) but I've never seen it happen where I am.

You can get deperdation permits for them but yes they are bad on calves, kids and fawn. Peck out the eyes.

So I just read that it is the black vultures that will kill small animals and eat them.
The article I read said turkey vultures will not do this and only eat carrion.

I believe the ones in the picture the OP posted are turkey vultures, not black???

I can't image them not, as they have same physical ability. Interesting reading though that blk hang out with Turkey because of the greater sense of smell.

Who knows
