Turkey Vultures, Marshall, Missouri
« on: April 04, 2021, 01:14:32 PM »

It's fun having the TV's back.  I love the grunting and other sounds they make.


They were poking around in the straw and once in a while looking like they might have found little tidbits to eat.


One settled into the nest bowl for a little bit, but then left.

The one was picking in the straw, but the other one appeared to be working on a nest bowl.

Very fond memories of this nest! :-*

April 16, 2021, Friday, 4:00 to 5:00 pm --  2 Turkey Vultures --  Marshall MO

A turkey vulture pair was in the loft for approximately an hour, last one left 5:09pm. It was a gentle rainy period.  Again vocalizing in corner nest for most of the time, out of sight.  The nest bowl is shaping up and both TVs are fluffing up the straw.
