Which Came First Turkey Vultures or Dracula?

Good Eeeeeveningbeginning in late spring we see a lot of Turkey Vultures here at Goebel Hill Farm. These huge birds with creepy red faces hang out in this valley all summer long.  They scavenge for carrion, road kill and they eat cow pies and rotten pumpkins, too.  Perfect!  Apparently, having that red skin on their faces, rather than feathers, keeps the mess in check!  We enjoy watching the vultures ride the thermals over the farm and in the valley below us.  One summer morning we counted seventeen birds all soaring in the sky at once!
