This morning, while sitting on the porch in the light breeze, I saw the first one soar and circle above and land. I went indoors and got the camera. My pictures aren't the best but I had a grand time snapping away as more and more of them arrived. I think there was a dead fish on the road that might have been dropped by another predatory bird. In one picture there seems to be a fish-shape under the buzzard's foot. Well here is the story as I saw it.
|First there was one|
|Then there were two|
|I soon saw three|
|I counted five - see one in the air|
|The seventh is in the upper left corner flying in|
|Adding up to a grand total of eight|
They all sat on the grassy bank for about half an hour just looking around!
