Hopes higher black/turkey vulture ratio is temporary
Jon Halsey, who lives in Northern Adair County, counted 70 Black Vultures roosting in woods behind house, with more in the air. He's seeing fewer turkey vultures, those majestic, beguiling fliers he much favors over the new invaders
Comments re article 42548 BJ Fudge notices iincrease in Black Vultures
By Jon Halsey
Up thru last Fall we had about 6 to 10 Turkey Vultures on a daily basis. The wife used to chide me for being beguiled while watching them soar majestically on the updrafts coming over the ridge.
Lately they have been replaced by a large number of the black variety. They have taken up their nightly roost in the woods behind the barn and Thursday evening the wife and I counted 70. That was a conservative count since many of them stayed on the move and we ignored many lest we double count.
Hopefully when the Black Vultures move on the Turkey variety will return. As hideous as they appear on the ground, they are awe inspiring in the air.
