     I pass this "buzzard" roost nearly every day.  Dozens of turkey vultures (they are not buzzards, but that's what most people call them) roost there whenever they choose to.  For years, they have roosted in a few trees in this small area.
     Turkey vultures are fascinating and, of course, useful creatures.  Follow the link below to learn more about them.
