    Wow, what a capture!

    A few weeks ago a turkey vulture landed on my occupied tree swallow nest box. Weird! The tree swallows and the nearby bluebirds attacked viciously resulting in the vulture leaving before I could boot up the camera and snap a picture.

    Next year I will monitor with trail cams.

    Amazing picture. I wish I could copy and save it.
