Nightingale. Usually a skulking bird that doesn't show to well.

Slightly different, but vultures snacking.

They are very aggressive birds of prey who are very noisy as they fight amongst themselves and rip flesh from bones.

This was shot at night.

I work beside the Connaught Firing Range.... there are HUNDREDS of wild turkeys running through the area and lots through West Carleton... keep your eyes open for them in the fields just east of Eagleson/Queensway in the fall after they harvest the corn...

LOL Don.

Sunday morning it was fairly quiet in the mountains but I had this Spotted Towhee that just hopped up to the top to take a look around.  Now if that 10 rattle Southern Pacific would have obliged me as well instead of slipping through the rocks...
