We’ve all heard of the natural phenomenon that is the pecking order. For Turkey Vultures along the Texas Gulf Coast, that hierarchy leaves a visible mark. Since the region lacks sizable trees, young, or tardy, or just plain unlucky vultures are forced to roost on lower limbs under the rest of their committee. Which means they often end up painted in feces, like this one I met recently. Poor bugger!
