Turkey Vulture eye

I sat on the couch tonight to watch Nova. Tonight's show was unusual animal friendships. First the show wanted to show that animals feel friendship. Well, I knew that. Besides having a hierarchy, cows prefer the company of certain other cows. I'd see the same cows coming in to be milked at the same time or grooming each other in the barn. Then the program wanted to show different species can choose to live together. Well, knew that too. I often see chickadees in the company of nuthatches or goldfinches and red polls flocking together. Then the show gave examples of disparate animals bonding. Guess I knew that too. By this time the cat was asleep on my lap and the dog was laying next to me on the couch.
