What You are about to see in this post is not considered normal behavior for Black Vultures. They do not come down in people's yards. They do not drink water from the songbirds birdbath or throw the blue glass stones on the ground. They do not challenge a parked vehicle to a showdown, nor do they let humans come in close with a camera. This is one of the reasons I began photographing Nature because nobody believed the weird experiences I seem to witness. All that being said, You will see for yourself that birds do not go by the humans dos and don'ts for that species! Baby Buzz who lives across the street in the woods, came over to kates cabin with a friend and had a showdown with the campvan tire! Oh Yes, I have photos to document this behavior (previously unknown). It is important for You to see and experience Nature for yourself and contribute what you find no matter how trivial. Many facts have been written about birds. I do not say anyone is wrong, rather conclusions are based on limited observations. Vultures and hummingbirds are very social birds and do many things humans do not see! Your sightings and information is important to share.
Enjoy and get to work!
