The Buzzard or Turkey Vulture…Necessary in Nature

 “It is unique among our vultures in that it finds carrion by smell as well as by sight. When threatened, it defends itself by vomiting powerful stomach acids.” Did I mention disgusting?

Fly Tying Materials: Never Enough?

I have so much fly tying materials! I do run low on certain things, like right now, I need to re-up on certain colors of marabou and rabbit strips. But, otherwise I have enough for years to come.

So, when I was out the other day, I came upon a dead hawk. It had been there for a bit and was damaged. But, I did gather a small amount of feathers for wing material. Not much, just a bit  that will make a great wing.

Here I harvested just a few feathers…just because they were there. I have been admonished/warned/shamed by commenter Craig about harvesting ‘raptor’ feathers. Hmm? What can I say?
