"Nose Hole" Buzzard

I told my friend the Trenchmonkey my goal for our Turkey Buzzard hunt was to get one where you could see the sky thru his nose hole. I have numerous where you can see his feathers thru the hole but not many with the sky visible. This was a big day for me I changed lenses on my Mark 3.

Very nice BIFs, Roger. No 5 has just fed - you can see the full crop protruding below its neck. No 6 did too -- its meal wasn'tas large, but you can still see a bulge. If you see one on the ground with a full crop, you don't want to disturb it, because if it has to take off in a hurry, it may upchuck to lighten the load (TVs only feed on decomposing carrion that they can smell, sincd they hunt by scent, which explains the large open nostrils). Not a pleasant prospet if you are anywhere near!
