Natures trash men. Typically I try to avoid people and birds together in a photograph. In this article I thought it good to provide a little perspective in size.
An important part of the Avian Conservation Center‘s (South Carolina) education programs center on vultures. Rural areas that see a drop in their population also find a vermin and disease increase. They will feed on anything and actually are immune to diseases they are fatal to humans.
Having interacted with vultures several times I have a new appreciation for them. Except for one thing, they are fascinated with shoe laces.
