This wasn’t the first time I had encountered large numbers of Turkey Vultures in Edinburgh, but it was the highest count. And this was my personal high count ever for one group of Turkey Vultures.
Over the last two years I have seen 20 – 25 Turkey Vultures in the dead tree west of Casey’s. But this time there was at least 3 times that many. And yes, I did look at every one of them in hopes of a Black Vulture, which I didn’t spot.
Otherwise the day was quiet except for a Blue-headed Vireo at Irwin Park. Still no waterfowl.
I count 70 in the attached photos, which is what I counted in the field. And I am sure I missed some.
How many do you count?
