I'm seeing a few Turkey Vultures with some regularity around the Sills Road, 
Medford area (Suffolk) in the past few days. This in itself is not particularly 
noteworthy but it does give me an opportunity to post the following link:

https://www.usnews.com/news/best-states/kentucky/articles/2019-06-28/black-vultures-are-roosting-and-eating-animals-alive

It's a gruesome article about vultures eating animals alive that you'll enjoy 
reading over lunch today or dinner this evening.
With our seemingly increasing Long Island population of Turkey Vultures, and 
Black Vultures also showing range expansion here, I often wonder how they find 
enough carrion to survive on the island.......
I fear it won't be long before Newsday publishes some hysterical article about 
Turkey Vultures devouring people's pets alive right in their backyards.
Cheers,
Glenn
