    Great detail of a strange bird

  • Strange is right… they have not feathers on their head as they poke their heads into rotten places to feed … yuck!

    Yeah…ugly. My Mom was talking about these birds a while back but I’ve never seen them during my visits to the island…will have to watch more closely next time. Glad you posted the photo, now I know what she was talking about. :)

  • Just look for a dead thing … if you watch the sky you will see eagles an vultures flying about … watch where they go … dead meat .. yum/
