Now you don't see that every day- Unless...

You don't see a congregation like this every day unless you regularly drive across the LaCygne power plant dam. A group of 60-70 turkey buzzards have chosen this particular tower to call home for roosting. Also called turkey vultures, they are known scavengers and are regularly seen cleaning up 'accidents' along our highways.

Other than being very messy (i.e., droppings), the vultures are harmless and do good job keeping roads cleared of other dead animals.
