I was driving home from the Sankanac Farm in Kimberton when a turkey vulture swooped down in front of my car. I had to slam on the brakes and swerve over and even so I nearly hit her. She landed a few yards from me and just stood there looking at the car. Instead of leaving, I backed up to get fully over on the side of the narrow road (Yellow Springs Rd. in Valley Forge). She flew up to a very low hanging branch. I got out of the car, walked over to her and we just stared at each other.
This is the second time in the past week I’ve had a vulture swoop in front of my car and land close by. What’s up with that?
o, and I am so kicking myself for not having my camera with me! She was absolutely beautiful!
