  1. after seeing Georges photo, figured this one was in the same vein. Looks like he mighta got fried on the high tension line. Either way, his gene pool is over. Sad to see, but nothing we can do...
    original.

    Wow, that's an amazing sight Harris. If he got zapped, wouldn't he be burned up?

    More than likely, it was an impact death. In order for electrocution, the bird would have to be grounded, and they usually aren't. Witness all the birds sitting on the wires and squirrels running along them (until they slip and hit a transformer, then, bam, out go the lights).

  6. Cmon Harris fess up this all your other birds are in the same shape you just pose them all so well...
     
  7. I assumed he was sparked, but no smoldering and he doesnt look ready for the plate. almost looks like he's hung up on something. I hate to see such an amazing animal end up like this. Very sad.

  11. Nice.
    When a vulture eats a dead vulture is that cannibalism :confused: Or do they leave it out of professional courteously like they don’t eat lawyers :confused:
    Apologies to the lawyers in the group couldn’t resist :biggrin:
