Subject: Vultures ahead of the storm
Yesterday afternoon, we were on our way home from Hinton when we noticed a
large kettle of vultures over the mouth of the Bluestone River. We stopped
and started counting. We had 74 turkey vultures, 43 black vultures and a
Cooper's hawk at one time.
The birds headed toward the south east. Right behind them came the storm.
The rain reduced visibility to just a few feet and the wind was a steady
13-17 mph, gusting to 21 mph.
I didn't post last evening because we had no power until this morning. AEP
reported about 1800 outages.
