I was tempted to make a joke about government employees or members of the media; but then I remembered that vultures serve a purpose, and it would’ve been an unfair comparison.

Ich habe einen Witz zu machen an staatliche oder Medienarbeitnehmer versucht. Doch habe ich erinnert, Geier einen Zweck haben. Das hätte einen ungerechten Vergleich sein. (Tut dieser Witz auf Deutsch funktionieren?)

    These birds are bigger than pictures give them credit for. I ran into one the other day at a job site and was taken back by how wide its wingspan was. Well, for THAT vulture. I don’t think it was the same type, but they can get very big.

      Yeah, I know they can; I don’t know how big these ones are. They hunch over, so it’s difficult to really get the scale (and these ones were pretty far away).

        I ran into one sitting on the top of a fence I had to pass through. As I got closer it took flight. HUGE wing span! Really amazing stuff, as I don’t see them in the wild very often.

    These are pretty amazing. One was slow leaving the roadkill once and became roadkill himself but not without taking out some mirrors and headlights on dad’s 18 wheeler-they are so huge that the impact was that great. Now dad honks at them to get them to move. These don’t look so creepy but usually when I see them I’m reminded of Disneyland’s haunted house.

      I suppose that’s a warning story for any vultures reading: too much roadkill affects your flight performance.
