  1. What a GREAT find. I don't think I have ever seen a Vultures nest before..... Or maybe I have and had no idea what I was looking at.

  2. Neat that you found a nest! Wouldn't it be wonderful to have a nest-cam and get to see the babies!

  3. (I think it's a squirrel's nest which happens to have a vulture sitting near it.)

  8. i think pville peg is correct. we have many squirrel nests in the trees in my yard and sadly one day i was watching a hawk flying around and a squirrel was racing up the trunk when the hawk swooped in and stole a baby squirrel from the nest. i saw the whole thing. so sad to see the mama squirrel go up to her nest and find her baby gone :(

  9. Nice picture! We usually see the vultures sitting in the trees in the spring here.

  10. Tanya and Peg, I hope they are not eating squirrels. Which is kind of funny because squirrels quickly multiply and become a nuisance! Still, they are so cute! I've been putting out extra food for the squirrel I saw who is missing one foot and his tail.
    Oh wait! Vultures eat carrion, not live animals. So maybe the squirrels are safe.

  12. Their nests aren't always very big so I think perhaps it is theirs.
    Hopefully this is close to you and you can watch to see if there is babies.

    Thanks for dropping by my blog. :)
