I've got some wild, wild life

Come on down to Mutual of J-TWO-O's Wild Kingdom!

We've got turkey vultures...

Which totally reminded me of this cartoon (even though I know the birds in the cartoon are buzzards, not turkey vultures):


who are the nemesis of the turkey vultures and were duking (or flighting) it out, just outside our bedroom window.

(Note: The above is either a red-tailed hawk, a sharp-shinned hawk, or a Cooper's hawk per my sources.)

And all the venison (aka deer) you can eat! (Though I could never bring myself to shoot one of these deer, who have become like family, albeit tick-infested family you'd never let into the house.)

Beautiful pics, J! How cool.

I'm sticking with Sharp-shinned Hawk based on the long legs; the Red-tailed usually has a bulkier body.
