...and you should, too.
Did you know that they're a symbol of the Goddess-- of, as we Shaktas say, "Life in death and death in life"?
And they're just cool. Did you know that Old World vultures evolved from raptors, while New World vultures evolved from crane-like birds? Did you know that the collective noun for vultures is a "wake" of vultures? (I've also heard "committee of vultures," which is even more appropriate.)
Did you know that Zora Neale Hurston wrote part of a chapter in Their Eyes Were Watching God from the point of view of vultures?
Saturday, September 5, 2009 is International Vulture Awareness Day.
I want you to go hug a vulture.
