While driving home from a trip to Walmart for cat food, toilet paper and salsa chips I saw a black (turkey) buzzard --- known as black and/or turkey vultures but nobody in Texas calls them vultures --- furiously eating a roadkill squirrel. It was soon joined by others and fights ensued on who'd get a serving. So I stopped my car and videoed the event. Turkey buzzards help keep the environment clean of death and decay. They serve a purpose in the cycle of life.
