Black Vulture

Coragyps atratus

Habitat:

"year-round in forested and open areas of the eastern and southern United States south to South America; breed in dense woodlands but usually forage in open habitats and along roads. Some live in semirural suburb" My observation: in South Florida they are commonly also seen in suburban and urban locations.

Notes:

On the shore of the southern tip of peninsular Florida. There were many campers and many people were fishing this morning. The vultures were eating a dead Ruddy Turnstone near the shore.
