What kind of birds are landing in our neighbors tree? Could it really be.... Turkey Vultures Their arrival time in the valley is March 16 through 31. Although they generally just fly over on their way to somewhere else. They are an uncommon valley resident, that is for sure! I think they are resting from a trying migrant journey. A neighbor's dog, watching me wistfully through a double window pane. No barking. Just that sweet yearning face. A little more black would make him yin and yang. It's been forever since I visited my blog. Hi there.
