Not for the faint of heart

Warning! If you are faint of heart, please just skip this entry.

Real life isn’t always pretty.

Thursday when I was coming off Jekyll after a great morning Bird Ramble, I saw something that caught my attention. A Turkey Vulture was sitting near something. At first glance, it looked like a bunny. Something was not right. Why was the vulture there? I pulled off the road and pick up my binoculars. Nope, no harmless little bunny munching on the sweet grass, it was a Peregrine Falcon. The young bird was plucking away at what was once a Laughing Gull.
