Banged-up Buzzards

A couple of buzzards circling over the bosque seemed pretty banged up and slightly feather bare. 

 

Looks rough even as a silhouette.

 

Spread eagle.

 

Looks as much like elk horns as it does a buzzard.

 

Banzai!

Wonder if they are molting? Nice captures, Tim!

I've been seeing a lot of buzzards lately in this area too.

Thanks, Susan! Could be molting, could be fighting over food, but those are wild guesses.
