Fun Friday: The Standoff

In today’s “Fun Friday” post, I’m featuring a pretty common sight. It seems that birds, typically vultures and some wading birds, like to come in close to where alligators are sunning and engage in a “stare-down” with each other. So far, I’ve not seen an alligator take one of these birds, but I’m sure it does happen.

Enjoy today’s fun post:
