Backyard Winter Nature in New Jersey.

A large number of Turkey Vultures were circling in the late afternoon sun. Some started to land in one of my neighbor’s trees. I really don’t want them spending the night on my roof soiling and damaging the solar panels.  I may install a security camera on the roof.
