    A future show to be defined soon....

    Blue Heron ?

    It's not a blue heron that we used to have them around here a few years back... but looks like this big black bird was trying to dive down my pond couple times today? Any idea what kind of bird is it?

    Looks like a black vulture to me. Did you have something dead in your backyard?

    Looks too small to be the type of black vultures we get around Orlando, but the wing feathers flare similarly. Perhaps a northern California version? ....Also looks a bit heavy-bodied to be a hawk. Need a California bird watcher.

    Whatever it is, any bird with a beak and talons swooping down at a pond would cause me to worry.
