My first black vulture. Commuting home on Rte 6 near Bolton, about 5:30, I
saw a large dark bird standing at the side of the road, talons holding
something. Once I was closer, I could see it was a vulture with a
squirrel, probably road kill. The vulture was very glossy black and bulky.
I can not say with 100% accuracy that I detected the white or grayish
head, but I did notice there was no red on its head or neck. And I did see
the gray legs. I know there have been many black vultures reported
recently. I wonder if this one was migrating, sniffed out the dead
squirrel, and swooped in for some fast food dinner.
