Laura reaches to pet
her vulture friend
Dan Martin with his Vulture.
I was doing a walkabout performance with my Axtell vulture (Vinnie) when I came up with this. If you use the bird arm, then slide your fingers almost all the way out of his mouth, you can close your fingers to make him tuck his head right in. You can then lay the vulture along the arm so all anyone can see is the black feathers.
ROAD KILL TRAFFIC LAWS??
If there's road kill on the road, do the rules of the road apply to a vulture's eating? What if the silly vulture thought they did?
A mother's Day poem by
© 1999 John Hardman˙
Who laid the egg and never cried?
Who warmed it with a wing of pride
And watched it hatch with me inside?
Who learned me how to circle high?
Who searched the highways night and day
Who taught me how to pick the meat
Tommy Johns and
his buzzard, Beauregard.

|--Buzzards were almost extinct, but their numbers are coming back. A disease, Myxamotosis, did not affect the birds themselves, but killed off a lot of their food source, especially rabbits. Now that the population of food source is growing again, Buzzards are becoming more populated.
--Buzzards have the nickname of "Dancing Hawk." They will go on a field and dance up and down, making worms think it is raining. When the worms surface, the buzzards grab them for food.
