We have a fairly substantial pod of them in our neck of the woods. They do a good job keeping the roads clear of roadkill.

Whales are pods - buzzards are committees (really)

However, coming to the title of this thread - if they are feeding they are called a Wake.

Hard to believe, but the apparent attraction for about 20 buzzards was one road kill squirrel.
(this group was getting an early start this morning, as I got the paper).

Must be slim-pickin's out there for the committees.

Guy - put this sign up in the tree. That'll get 'em to move to Arizona.

Oh no......if I put that sign up, no dog, cat, grandma or child would be safe from:
"the BBorce" (bubba + beer+ the force). I doubt Our bubba's (that rip roar down our road, giving us free beer cans along the way)
know where AZ is anyway. BTW: now that I think about it:
the buzzards may be the only ones who appreciate the BBorce.

I thought a large group of buzzards was called a Congress. Would certainly explain a lot. :glee:

I will tell you a group of alligators is called a congregation! :angel:

And a bunch of crows is a murder., then there's an ostentation of peacocks... a bunch more oddly named gatherings of animals: a parliament of owls, a knot of frogs, and a skulk of foxes.

I like the skulk one.
