What amazed me still further was the neighbors cat (seen below to the left). He had no fear of the birds and they were huge compared to him. You can't tell this by the photo. This is the same cat who climbs a tree and jumps on our roof and goes to the second story widow to spray his urine. We finally got him to stop doing this (which he did every day) by putting out moth balls on the roof next to the window!!!! UGH.

The vulture below has just finished eating an entire squirrel entree. It was amazing to watch. Alas, I have a bird feeder out front near the road and every so often a squirrel who has partaken of the seed will get hit by a car. This morning one was hit. This vulture ate everything --skin, bones, and all! Then another vulture arrived, but all that was left was a few tiny tidbits.
