Subject: [AlabamaFolklife] The "Belled Buzzard"
I am seeking any/all references (newspaper stories, folklore
collections, fiction, musical compositions, etc) to the legendary
"Belled Buzzard." While there were many actual sightings ca 1880-ca
1920 of this buzzard with a cow bell tied to its neck, it came to be a
folklore symbol, and was often considered to be a harbinger of
death.Can anyone direct me to new sightings?
