It is that time of year again, Spring is en-route, and this is the day the buzzards return to Hinckley, Ohio. San Juan Capistrano might have swallows, Ohio has large, carrion-eating raptors. (Considering the number of highways and roadkill in Ohio, that’s probably a good trade-off. )
You see them most along the highways, and can tell them from hawks because of their dark undersides–most of the local broadwinged hawks have white or spotted bellies. Sometimes, though, they did circle around the coroner’s offices I’ve worked at. Kind of unnerving.
