TV Convention

Turkey vultures, that is!
So magnificent soaring overhead quiet and ominous like eagles.
They will sit on my fence and extend their enormous wings
to warm themselves up on chilly winter afternoons.
Don't mind their red heads complete
with wattle and carnivorus beaks.
Looks aren't everything!
What wonderful birds, sometimes numbering
two or three dozen or more.
Welcome to the neighborhood!
