Thatīs what they call these around here. I donīt understand a word these people are saying :( .
These are in back of a Peruvian fish market, where the fisherman come in and sell their fish right there on the beach. The pelicans hang around waiting for peope to feed them - they look healthy to me.
I thought this was one of our regular neighborhood red-tailed hawks, until it got closer and I saw it was a turkey vulture. Flying over the school parking lot.
After lunch, the birds fly into the cafeteria to feast on what the students leave behind
holy crap ! :eek: a TURKEY VULTURE :confused: flying over your carpark ? you got some pretty exotic birdlife over there mate. :)
The campus of the high school I work at borders a small section of national park (the Golden Gate National Recreation Area.) So, we get all kinds of wild life: hawks, ravens, lots of other birds, red fox, coyotes, deer, etc. I was in the parking lot just after lunch, hoping to get some shots of a hawk. This is the first time I've ever seen one of these buggers, though. Amazing the amount and variety of wild life less than 10 miles from a major city!

1.What kind of bird it is...?:rolleyes: :)
2.These are birds too,right?:) :D
Saw these two 'playing' around out back yesterday. Didn't have a TC on my 70-200, so they're cropped pretty bad, but I thought still worth sharing.
