Happy Belated Father's Day to Daddy Vulture, Wherever He Is!

Happy Belated Father's Day to Daddy Vulture, Wherever He Is!

Baby Vulture (About Two Weeks Old on Father's Day 2013)


For Father's Day weekend, my husband, daughter and I went to visit my in-laws on their ranch in southern Missouri. My father-in-law was excited to show us a baby vulture he'd found nesting in one of his barns and asked if I would take a picture of it. This baby was tucked way back behind some hay bales in the dark, and the only reason he'd known anything out of the ordinary was there was because he'd heard the baby hissing. Baby vultures hiss when feeling threatened. Who knew? This little guy had a wingspan of almost two feet and was about two weeks old when I climbed back in the barn to photograph it. I was a little nervous that mama or daddy vulture might return and attack me to protect the baby, but my husband, daughter and father-in-law were watching my back. The little vulture really is kind of cute, isn't it? (If you click on the picture, you can get a better look.)

How did everyone else spend Father's Day?

He's kinda creepy cute. And looks sort of made up. LOL Thanks for sharing this. It's really fun.
