Black Vulture Chicks

Turkey Vulture Chicks

I mentioned in a previous post that the Center for Birds of Prey has hosted two wild Black Vulture nests this year.

The Vulture parents picked spots in between the captive birds’ enclosures, which mimic the dark recess they might find in the wild. The female lays her eggs on the ground.

The juveniles’ feathers were transitioning from chick fluff, making them look a bit scruffy.
