Rhyolite's Bird Photos

Good morning to all.  What fantastic views and animals we see out in this desert.
DesertDale and Kitfoxgal goes for walks each day.  DesertDale aways bring that camera with him, what a fantastic shoots he gets, at different time.
Here are a few.
 These are
 "Turkey Vultures" that we seen on one walk, that was out in the road, eating their "breakfast" of rabbit.

They are one ugly bird. Their heads are bare skinned.  When in the air they seldom flop their wings.  It seems like they just glad along, riding the air currents.
They use their sense of smell to find their pray.  It can detect the dead prey from far away.
It usually looks for food alone.  Occasionally they will be with another, as they did when this photo was taken.
This is a "Says Phoebe".  He is a west coast bird.  They are a very friendly bird. As you can see.  He is setting on a old sofa, that has been dumped out here in the desert.  He is not far from our rig.
This little guy was caught setting on our Bar-B-Q this morning, by know other then DesertDale.  
It is a Eurasian Collared-Dove. This Eurasian Collared-Dove landed on my BBQ this morning.
 The bird was  introduced in the in the Bahamas back in 1975.  Then came up north in 1986 and work it's way across the country.

DesertDale caught the Dove sleeping on the Bar-B-Q, before he put his camera away.  Good shoot!!!!!

Windy day, here in this vast desert. Kitfoxgal
