|Baby Buzzard half grown|
Buzzards are dumb but not stupid!
The pair of buzzards that have nested in my barn for the last two years have hatched and raised three chicks.
It’s been fun watching the babies outgrow their yellow baby feathers and grow rapidly through the ugly duckling stage to a full set of black wing feathers.
One of their instincts is to go into the sun and dry their wings.
It probably takes some weight off and makes it easier to fly.
