black vulture

Coragyps atratus


They have poor sense of smell, so they usually follow Turkey Vultures to carcasses.


Open woodland. They have lived in open areas of the eastern and southern United States south to South America.


I was walking to a friends house and saw these two fellows picking at something on the ground. It was really cool so I took a picture of them.

There are also the chats for help with identification, and to comment on your own and others’ spottings.
Look at the global and local missions to put your spottings into:
Enjoy yourself here, see you around!
