Guess who's coming to dinner?

This time last week I was trying to decide what to give up for Lent: Thank goodness the local population of turkey vultures (Cathartes aura) did not give up venison for the Lenten season.
They're here en masse in all their funereal splendor; on Vinoland's gate, fence, up in the trees, and of course on the carcass of the dearly departed doe. Mother Nature's recyclers are doing their job.

Affer, were you hen-pecked also?
