May 4, 2017

Location: St. Sebastian River Preserve State Park, red trail.

We are circling vultures,
But that doesn't mean something died.
It means that we found a warm air current
That makes it easy for us to glide.

(We teach beginning birding, and almost all new birders think that vultures circle over dead things. This is a myth spread by TV and movies.)
