A couple vultures on the hillside. What are they eating?

Upon closer inspection, it looks like a dead coyote. This guy didn’t run fast enough.

What happens when deer and turkeys collide? In this case, neither seemed too upset. The turkeys did make room for the deer to pass.

On the way home I passed the buzzards and coyote carcass one more time. Scavengers sure make short work of a carcass. Within a day, a coyote body is turned into a small pile of bones and shortly thereafter even the bones will disappear.
