Turkey buzzard.

I rarely see these up this close in Maryland.

Turkey-buzzard

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.
