Buzzard Day

Whowouldathunk: Turkey Vultures have their own holiday. Numerous websites recognize March 15 as Buzzard Day... and here I thought March 15 was just the Ides of March (thanks to Mrs. Idler's 10th-grade English class).

Regardless, the avian garbage disposals apparently get their due on March 15. They also are the guests of honor at Buzzard Sunday in Hinckley, Ohio.

Check out this Turkey Vulture Society bumper sticker!

I have always wanted to go see "Buzzard Day" in Hinckley. It a bit of a drive just to see lots of vultures (We are in Cincinnati, they are outside Cleveland), but I will have to make the pilgrimage someday.
But I take umbrage at the use of "buzzard". Buzzards are European hawks, not American carrion-eaters!
