The Waiting Game

A few weeks ago we were exploring some old fallen down buildings on the airport property when this bird hopped out of one of the "shelters" and gave us his mean birdy eye.

Mom told dad that she thought it was trying to build a nest in the little fort it had found but it seemed odd because there was nothing in it that looked like a nest.

Mom and dad said this is a vulture.  A few days later dad went back to check and see if the bird was still living in there and it turns out mom was right!  It didn't really build a nest but it did lay two eggs!

So now we are playing the waiting game waiting for the baby vultures to make their debut.


  1. That is so cool! We have recently been seeing vultures close to home but I don't think any of them are going to nest here. I can't wait to see the baby vulture!


  2. That is SO cool. Please keep us posted. We can't wait to see baby vultures.
