Buzzards Resting in the Trees

Life in Christian County, Kentucky... More About Birds and Animals...



Buzzards roosting in a tree

I have lived here in Kentucky, the Land of Buzzards, for about 15 years. In that time, I have rarely seen buzzards resting in a tree, and never at 8:30 a.m. Usually, I see them in the air, riding the winds, or on the ground, gorging on roadkill. These two must have already had plenty to eat or they'd surely have been doing their usual aerial reconnaissance.

Thanks, Mom. I don't consider this one to be too great of a photo, but it does have an unusual topic.

CONTENTMENT: Keep your heart free from hate, your mind from worry, live simply, expect little, give much, sing often, pray always, forget self, think of others and their feelings, fill your heart with love, scatter sunshine. These are the tried links in the golden chain of contentment.

IT IS STILL BEST to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasure; and to be cheerful and have courage when things go wrong.
(Laura Ingalls Wilder, 1867-1957)
