    High-tech Roost

    A couple blocks from my home is this cell phone tower that has become these Turkey Vultures' favorite roost. There are 20+ here and more may arrive before nightfall. This must be a good area for them since their numbers seems to be growing. They are graceful fliers.

    Shot with a 500 mm. They have made quite a mess of the equipment. I image the equipment service personnel would like to shoot them with something a bit more lethal.

    Very cool shot. You must have a lot of road kill around there to feed them all. Odd that so many would gather together to compete over the food supply.

    There will probably be a little bit of warmth coming from their perch and they obviously have not done any reading on the suspected health dangers of long term exposure to radio waves.

    Very well taken.
