I rarely see these up this close in Maryland.
I know, I know: it vaguely looks like a crow, but it’s a turkey buzzard. I mean, why would I lie about it?
PS: Well, I wasn’t going to get out of the dang car and get a closeup. Turkey buzzards are scavengers; I’m sure that they’re harmless, but I fully expect them to smell bad, and probably use vomit as a weapon*. So I don’t hassle it, it doesn’t hassle me, it’s all good.
*Hold on, let me check that… HA! They do. Well, I knew that condors do that, so it only stands to reason.
