Shadowmancer

Night of The Vulture / Buzzard

XXVII Nights of Halloween



Vulture/Buzzard

Deathwing. The morbid scavenger bird of the wasteland. Eater of carrion. Picker of eyes. Its deep & intense glare denotes a face of death. Bird of ill-omen, & bringer of pestilence.

Once again, I think these birds are adorable. I've never found them to be ugly or worrysome. They have a beauty all their own. And who can forget Lurch's "Muerto"?
