    Crow..? Hope it's not a vulture- they can smell dead cambium one mile away!

      Definitely a vulture. ... they fall out of the pine trees next door when it snows this heavily.

        I can see the red on his head - Turkey vulture.

        One time I found a dead raccoon in my yard and TV's were all over it. I thought, cool - let nature take care of it. Then they roosted on my kids' swing set and crapped all over it. Gross.

        Great pic! Even the vultures are sick of this winter.

          I don't mind a few but the right of way that borders my property is lined with 60' tall white pine trees. Every winter as many a 200 roost in those trees. The stench every spring is something to behold. Luckily crows come every spring and harass them until they leave.

            I see those turkey vultures everyday on the backroads near route 100... yesterday 3 of them were in the middle of road and stayed there until my car was 10 to 15 feet away from them, then flew away at last minute.
