More pictures...

When I was on vacation I took a couple of walks and saw more than vultures. I saw these eagle like birds that we call ospreys. I wonder how they get along with vultures?
And here is this river or whatever you want to call it. I thought it was a nice picture.

Lovely photos Lil Lambie, especially the one of the river, that looks very peaceful...osprey are birds of prey, vultures tend to eat dead or dying animals...I dont know if they would be friends,dont think so. ♡

Actually, it wouldn't take too much investigating to find out that your vulture, unlike the turkey vulture more common in the states....will kill its prey, and has, before.
Be careful around them, gal.

Little Lamb said...

Dianne, good point. Birds of prey are very interesting.

Boney, I didn't know that. It's a good thing they're afraid of me, for now. I will be careful.

Nice pictures LL. Ospreys used to be called "Fish Hawks," because they grab fish from the water. Got to see them fishing up in Northern WI. Magnificent birds. Doubt they and the vultures have much to do with each other.

The only thing vultures and ospreys might have in common would be a mutton BBQ at /t.'s place...it is, after all, a BBQ weekend in a lot of places...

Little Lamb said...

/t. That's very true. There's alligators in there, too.

Phos, thank you. Birds fascinate me.

Mike, thanks for visiting. I agree with you.

(psssst! I found out that /t might be Indian. But you have to scroll all the way down to the bottom where it says, "How to Become a Canadian")

boneman said...

and...up here, we don't call those "rivers"....
We call those "trees"...

You went on vacation WITHOUT me?

Little Lamb said...

Boneman, you could be right about /t. Who really knows him online?

Puggy, Umm, how do I explain this, let's see. Umm not really. I just took some time off. That's it! I did take some time off.

Ruela said...

Nice pic!

Little Lamb said...

Thanks! :-)

The Phosgene Kid said...

How are your pet vultures?

Little Lamb said...

Fine, I guess. I haven't seen any lately.

dianne said...

Maybe they have gone down to the river to search for dead bodies, thats if the alligators have left anything for them to eat. ♡

Little Lamb said...

that's possible, I guess. The Ospreys live there They have a nest in the trees. They go there every year.

The Phosgene Kid said...

IS that the Suwanee River?

Little Lamb said...

No. Isn't that supposed to be in Kentucky or someplace?

The Phosgene Kid said...

Maybe the Okeechobee?

Little Lamb said...

No not that one either. I live in the same state as that one.

Little Lamb said...

Are you saying birds and lambs flock together?

/t. said...

yes

<3

Little Lamb said...

Oh dear! Maybe the flock and I should look for birds to hang out with. What kind of birds do you suggest we look for?

/t. said...

vultures
are kind of cool,
but
english maids are prettier
and smell better

Little Lamb said...

Vultures are too scary. English maids are human.

The Phosgene Kid said...

unless they are robotic English maids...

Little Lamb said...

True. Then they would be robots.

The Phosgene Kid said...

Most English people seem to be robotic.

Little Lamb said...

Not in real life.

The Phosgene Kid said...

In make believe life??? Any more vacation pictures???

Little Lamb said...

No, on message boards. Just of vultures and stuff.

/t. said...

maids

like maidens
not
like servants

Little Lamb said...

Lambs do not hang out with birds.
Lambs do not hang out with maids or maidens.
lambs do hang out with other lambs.

Bird of a feather flock together. That's why one says "flock of lambs."

Or look at it this way, lambs of a wool flock together.

excepting
those crazy
argyle wool lambs

The Phosgene Kid said...

What about the poor Naugas, exploited for their durable hides?

Little Lamb said...

/t. Argyle lambs? I'd like to meet those.

Phos, Naugas, durable hides?

/t. said...

yes, LL

the lambs that give the
wool for argyle socks & sweaters

¤ ¤ ¤

/t.

Little Lamb said...

Really? Lambs give wool for argyle socks and sweaters? Do they come in those colors?

boneman said...

don't they die the lambs before they shave them?

Little Lamb said...

Hmmm, that's a good question.
