Turkey Vultures - A Round Hill Icon

When driving into Round Hill from the east, you will often see Turkey Vultures perched in one of the largest trees in town. There can be upward of fifty of these large birds looking over as you drive by (all hoping you drive into the ditch, I'm sure). Pictured here are roughly twenty five vultures, though some are obscured by the thick branches. Many more flew away upon my approach.

We get lots of these along Logmill Road also, as you approach Bull Run Mountain. Logmill always has some unfortunate critter who is being dined upon by these guys.
