What's their business plan? Are they investor backed? What's the expected ROI?

But how do we tell lobbyists from real vultures?

One kind of vulture enjoys shiatting on its own feet and projectile vomiting as a defense mechanism. The other kind has feathers.

My college had a building built halfway into a hill. The second story hall was a walk through between other buildings and looked into trees. I had the fortune to be walking through one day and a red tailed hawk went for a glide between trees at my eye level.

A few weeks later the walkway under was closed because the hawk had nested in one of those trees and was attacking students. Well, at least a color blind, crossed eye Mormon I had the misfortune of knowing.

I knew Washington was circling the drain, but not quite so literally...

Not just lobbyists and trade associations in the K St. NW area. Unless they moved, the National Geographic Society is out there.

The vultures should just carry on.

Hopefully waiting for the farkers to finally jump.

Calling lobbyists vultures is an insult to vultures. At least vultures serve a purpose in the ecosystem.

Hawks hate Mormons. Nobody knows why.

Perhaps they were lonely? I can't believe how lonely things are on K-Street.

This is suspiciously perfect. I bet a campaign ad required footage of vultures on K Street.

I feel bad for the poor vultures!

Sounds like the average iq and ethic level on K street is on the way up!

If it's K Street, there are probably vulture hookers hawking their wares all night, too.

O.K., so I got on my computer and checked:
National Geographic Society
1145 17th Street N.W.
Washington, D.C. 20036-4688

About 2 blocks north of K Street, NW. If you zoom in on Google maps, they are surrounded by The American Enterprise Institute, the American Chemical Society, the Wilderness Society, the Women's Foreign Policy Group, the International Union of Operating Engineers (crane operators, among other things), the Pew Research Center, the National Council of LaRaza, and approximately 4,327 Starbucks.

I give them a week. Before those poor birds are picked clean.

Are them vultures crooked?

Can't seem to shake these vultures off of my trail...

Unlike hawks that find their food by seeing it, he (former Washingtonian and birds of prey expert Mike Dupuy ) said vultures use their sense of smell, following the scent of decay to its source (cue the "House of Cards" references).

Turkey Vultures can locate food by smell. These birds, if the picture is actually of one of them and not just a stock photo of a vulture that somebody dug up, are Black Vultures, which hunt by sight. Former Washingtonian and birds of prey expert Mike Dupuy may not have seen the birds or the picture himself, and just assumed they were TVs, which are probably more familiar to most people.

The Methodist Church has a Saturday food program.  I hope the vulture know that they will need a referral to participate.
