Pretty Is As Pretty Does
These really are faces only their mother could love. I am pretty sure they have to be number one when it comes to the ugliest bird in the kingdom. But they have an important job and you can always count on them. They show up, sometimes in droves, to clean up the land of dead rotting creatures. Who else is going to do it? The only complaint they might have is there may not be enough dead ground squirrels on any given day to feed the whole group. They might complain that hawks are invading their air space. Other than that, I think they have a good life. And I'd say pretty is as pretty does when it comes to turkey vultures.
