Turkey Buzzards Drying Wings After Rain

They don’t have the noble head of a hawk or a falcon, but they are masters of flight — cruising the updrafts, looking for rotting meat.

About Lloyd Kahn

Lloyd Kahn started building his own home in the early '60s and went on to publish books showing homeowners how they could build their own homes with their own hands. He got his start in publishing by working as the shelter editor of the Whole Earth Catalog with Stewart Brand in the late '60s. He has since authored six highly-graphic books on homemade building, all of which are interrelated. The books, "The Shelter Library Of Building Books," include Shelter, Shelter II (1978), Home Work (2004), Builders of the Pacific Coast (2008), Tiny Homes (2012), and Tiny Homes on the Move (2014). Lloyd operates from Northern California studio built of recycled lumber, set in the midst of a vegetable garden, and hooked into the world via five Mac computers.

  1. with their wings out like that, they look rather magnificent.

    Lloyd, ran across this , thought you’d get a kick out of it. I believe you’ve had post on here about straw bale urinals, but this is a new “twist” (twisted) take on it. Especially the instructional diagram which seems to indicate men should stand back a ways. (what’s next— a charge for public indecency?)…—also got a kick out of someone in the article that Paris would next be installing litter boxes for women.
