I saw something this morning that caused me to take a double-take and then
a triple-take etc, etc..... Maybe you can explain it to me.
I saw several vultures and then the sun caught a 'white' bird with them.
Being on the coast, I did my usual "it's just a gull" routine, but then I
noticed long legs like a wading bird. I was ok with that, too, just
assuming that it was flying past, as opposed to flying with the vultures.
Then I realized it was flying with the vultures! I saw them circle
numerous times together. This bird clearly appeared to be a Wood Stork
with its black and white wings, long legs, long neck and beak. But how can
this be. I'll admit that a stork's head is as ugly as a vulture's but what
in the world do they have in common that they'd be soaring together???
