Did you know a coven of vultures swirling overhead is called a 'kettle?' I love that. It makes me think of a fortune teller's black magic tea-leaves, steeping in her stove-top cauldron.

Years ago a friend of mine said he watches for vultures as the sign that spring is here. Ever since, I've felt very maternal toward these creatures. Thanks for the article.

Cool! My favourite vulture is the lammergeier - 3 meter wingspan!
