    Cute Vulture?

    For anyone interested in buying good binoculars - whether for hunting, sports, or birding- the birder's bazaar gives you an opportunity to try them out. There aren't too many opportunities to try out brands that you've heard of - but have never seen in a store.

    OK - maybe vultures aren't cute. But then if you've ever looked at the head of a roseate spoonbill.. that's a face only a mother could love. If you've seen a vulture soaring - you can appreciate their elegance in the sky.

    Have you noticed that the island doesn't have any vultures? Vultures don't like to fly over water - they soar on the air currents put up by warm land masses. It's very unusual to see a vulture on the island.
