[CT Birds] Black Vultures in Cheshire

There must now be dozens of pairs breeding in CT as a minimum. I see multiple individuals regularly in various locations, and they are behaviorally less obvious than TVs (which of course makes locating nest sites a tad tougher as well). I've seen well over a dozen at the Norwich roost and Bob Askins has reported as many as 50+ BVs at the Smith Cove roost on the Thames for a few years now.

From Steve Broker (Cheshire):
01/23/12 - Cheshire -- 4 BLACK VULTURES leaving the Dragon Buffet Restaurant and crossing Route 10 to Radio Shack's roof, 2:30 P.M..  I know of only two breeding records for Black Vulture in Connecticut.  Efforts should be made to document further nesting of this rapidly expanded species in the state, in caves, rock recesses, talus slopes, barns, etc..
