The belled buzzard is a part of Appalachian folklore and is known as "the belled bird of doom." According to the traditional stories, he came to announce the coming of death by flying over the home of his victim. The dying person (usually a retired judge, general or senator) would hear the doleful tolling of the bell and know that death was near.
