In southeastern CT the roads are littered with dead squirrels. I saw another one get hit on my way home last night (I didn't hit it!). I have been expecting some raptor hits as a result but thankfully haven't encountered any yet.

Subject: [CT Birds] Turkey vulture with state road "TV dinner" - Woodbury

On my way to Woodbury from Washington, CT on RT 47 I had a surprise of a young turkey vulture in the road considering a dead squirrel on the road for a "TV dinner". The vulture flew up out of harms way, I was not going as fast as most to traffic on this state road goes. When I came up RT 47 the dead squirrel the vulture was interested in was still there. I think this young turkey vulture was very hungry to be considering a dead squirrel on a fairly busy road for a "TV dinner".
