A Little More About The Buzzard Eggs
Since a couple of you were surprised mama buzzard layed her eggs where she did I'll tell you I was surprised as anyone because I never knew anything about buzzards except that we see them eating road kill. John had just bought a place south of here with the old house in my header. Not occupied for years. We didn't go there but maybe once a week as he didn't have cattle there yet. One day we went in the old house to look around. It was only a kitchen and bedroom.. There were two large eggs on the kitchen floor, not even in a nest. John run the buzzard out and closed up the chimney and a window that had been broken out. He threw the eggs away.Buzzard and eggs forgotten about. Next time we went out she had layed two more in what used to be a shed and they were on the floor, no nest. I told John let let her hatch them s to see what baby buzzards look like. I never dreamed we would actually get to see baby buzzards.
