Shabby phonecam photos of the large turkey buzzard that visited our back yard yesterday, probably searching for the whatever-it-is that smells like a dead thing hidden somewhere under the ivy. Turkey buzzards have very good eyesight, so it was able to detect me through three layers of screens & windows as I would crouch slightly, as if about to attack. It would also crouch, and be ready to take flight, which it eventually did. It's impressive to watch such a large bird flying in an enclosed area.
Meanwhile, it is day 6 of the blackout, and I'm ready for a return to the 21st c. .
