I Couldn't Believe My Eyes!!

Yesterday as Zoe and I were headed out for our afternoon walk, I saw this huge thing fly from feasting on an unfortunate squirrel in the middle of our road up to our neighbor's roof. I have never seen one of these in person but to the best of my knowledge (and a Bird Book I have) I think this critter is a Turkey Vulture! Amazing. His body did look like a turkey but that head definitely looks like a vulture. He hung around for quite some time, flying down from time to time, between cars going by, to help himself to a little more of the squirrel. After about an hour he finally gave up and flew off to greener pastures.
