Two Black Vultures were hanging around on the ground at the end of the dike along the big pond at Donnelley Wildlife Management Area on Saturday. They were oddly indifferent to human presence, just flying up into an oak tree as I got closer.
It had been a cold morning, just down to freezing, and they both seemed content in the sun as the day warmed up.
This one actually hunkered down on a branch, as if to stay awhile.

Very handsome vulture! Love the coal black colour.
They really are, Liz, and somewhat more visually appealing than our more common Turkey Vulture with their pink/reddish heads.
