Black Vulture, August 31, 2016

Black Vultures, Coragyps atratus, can be found across much of the southeastern United States. If you look closely you can see the tips of white wing patches that are much more visible in flight. Black Vultures are scavengers, feeding on dead animals that they locate by their keen eyesight.

Hope you have a wonderful day!

  1. Great shot, I think they are cool looking birds. Happy Wednesday, enjoy your day!

  2. I have a real soft spot for vultures. They are such necessary birds. They do the important work of helping to keep the environment clean.

  3. Great image. I usually see the turkey vultures around here.

  4. Hello!:) What a great shot of what seems to be an enormous bird. I have never seen any kind of vulture, except on blogs, and in films.
    Thank you for sharing this bird, which for you is commonplace, but for me is most unusual.

  5. I remember a joke about vultures sitting on a wire supposedly waiting for something to die and one decided it was time to go out and kill something because he was getting hungry and tired of waiting for something to die....

  6. Great photo, I have never seen a vulture before except in a zoo – I won’t call them pretty but they are kind of majestic looking.

    1. Hello Helene, thanks for your visit to my blog.
      Your End of the Month view is so pretty! And such a wonderful, wide variety of plants! I love Sunflowers! You may have to get your garden helper up on a ladder to get a photo of the tall one's bloom.
      Have a great week-end!

  7. Cool shot of a very interesting bird!

  8. I see them often in Ashburn. They look great up in the sky!

  9. GREAT close-up image of the vulture!!! Impressive.

    I'm a bit late in getting over to visit with you this weekend...hope all is going well, and thanks for adding your blog to the linking tool at I'd Rather B Birdin'.

  10. They are important birds to have and we see quite a few in Florida. They have lots to eat here! lol Hugs!


I enjoy your comments!
