Seen yesterday in the sky over Avenue B... a pair of turkey vultures ...
website: "Despite their intimidating presence, vultures are pretty harmless. They have no incentive to attack humans and they lack the physical attributes that could pose a threat. Although they are carnivorous, most vultures feed only on animals that are already dead." (Audobon has a nice TV recap here.)
Anyway, there are turkey vulture sightings around here from time to time. Nothing to worry about!
