    Well, I had a raccoon that got into one of my coops and killed my guineas. I set a trap and caught it the next day...pow!!!....one dead raccoon. So I took him to the back of my 10 acres and tossed him on the ground; we have a lot of vultures, and I hated to waste the carcass. I saw them out there yesterday evening, so I knew they had found him.

    I peeked out my window this morning to see how things were out back and saw this guy on my back fence:

    I tried to sneak out there and get a closer picture, but he flew off. How exciting is that!!!!

    Eagles are beautiful, that is for sure.

    But, there is a nesting pair near me, so my hens have to stay confined.

    Well, also because of my neighbor's dogs . . . .

    That is a beautiful thing to see for sure. What is next to him on the fence to the right? Is that another bird?

    Thats a vulture. You can see one on the ground at the buffet, too.
