Warning. Stay Away.

You all remember the story about the giant buzzards that were living on the roof of Taylor's townhouse? The buzzard removal men scared them away using Godfather style tactics.  On the way to teach this morning, Linda saw a flock (really a wake, committee, venue, kettle, or volt depending on which article you read) on the side of the road about 1/2 mile from our house!  She's pretty sure they are the same birds: Beady eyes, big black bodies and a really ugly faces.  If they come to our house, Linda is going to freak out.  According to buzzard experts, they won't swoop down and attack anything bigger than a chipmunk.  Unfortunately, there are lots of news threads that talk about little Yorkies and Chihuahuas getting attacked.  One story mentioned a little baby cow getting swarmed by them.  Linda is going to keep her eyes peeled for any sign of the wake taking up residence in our yard.
I wouldn't put it past her to put on some giant wings and show them who is boss.
