Office Park Surprises

I always enjoy the delights of office park birding.  At least in my office block, one that abuts a game land / wet land associated with massive Lake Jordan.  This past Friday I was entertained by the spectacle of a Black Vulture haunting both of our office towers.  Black Vultures are reasonably common in the area but I don't often see one.  We more routinely see their cousins, the Turkey Vulture.  This one apparently had found some points of interest obscure to me: I am unaware of carrion issues even in our parking lot.  It's a good lesson for all of us: keep watch even in the most unpromising candidate locations: you never know when you might find a bird of great interest!
