This has got to be one of the weirdest things I have seen while on a bike. I'm out for a Saturday afternoon spin on some dirt roads (pure cardio work) and moving along at a brisk pace and see a buzzard sitting on the edge of the road eating a dead something. Well I get within 20 feet of this thing before it notices me, it is startled to say the least and takes to wing like a 747. This particular stretch of road is tree lined and there is nowhere for it to go but straight down the road with me hot on its trail. All of a sudden this black bomber begins to spew chunks of meat from its mouth, I don't meat tidbits here....golf ball size chunks and lots of it. Kinda freaked me out for a minute and the chase was definitely off. Could this be some kind of defense mechanism? Sure was weird.
