Long Run Randomness 3 - running is for the birds

Okay, so running isn't really for the birds. But these birds were were on my run!

Now, keep in mind, I live in the city. Large mice are the closest we have to wild animals (okay, it's Houston, so I do see the occasional horse riding by). I had no clue what these were as I stopped my run to stare. Turkey?  A new species of duck?  The extinct do-do bird?  Finally, I settled on the idea that they were vultures stalking their prey (I was running pretty slowly). 

**Update - I've been informed they are guinea fowl and they are apparently residents of the area.  Learn something new every run!
