BLACK VULTURE PROJECT:
Black vultures are commonly seen in the skies over America’s southern and eastern states. They are gregarious, often seen in communal roosts or feeding on carrion, helping keep the environment clean. Adults form long-term monogamous relationships and typically have two fluffy, yellow-beige colored chicks each year. Adults share incubation and feeding responsibilities, and continue to feed their young for as long as eight months after fledging, helping to establish bonds among kin that last a lifetime.
This research and educational nest cam project is entering its fourth season. Key dates are on the Nest history page. The project is sponsored by Tri-State Bird Rescue and Research, Inc. of Newark, DE, Michael Postolan of Glenham, NY, and the anonymous owner of the property where the nest is located.
Live video for other nests is also available at this website. Of particular interest is the Chimney Swift page, which features the only nest for this species from which live video is currently being streamed to the Internet.
