Turkey Vulture in flight

A pair of Turkey Vultures are nesting on one of the lower (layered) roofs of the office building on the SE corner of Sherbourne and Bloor, in Toronto.

I was walking on the other side of Bloor when I noticed one of the birds stretching its wings, as it perched on the edge of the roof and surveyed the area.

Then it took off. While its partner took up the watching location, small, fluffy white feathers rose from the roof area.

Obviously there is a nest, perhaps with babies.

There are currently four Turkey Vultures spiralling around at Brock and 401. This terrifies my parrot who is convinced they will eat him!

Welcome back Turkey Vultures
by: Caroline

I'm so glad to hear that these wonderful birds are nesting in downtown Toronto. They'll be good company for the Peregrines and Red Tailed Hawk - some cleanup to go with the pest control. The first one I ever saw in Canada (about 20 years ago) was in downtown Toronto, cruising majestically past my 66th floor window in the Scotia Tower. This week I've seen singles or small groups most days cruising my neighbourhood - Leaside, in mid-town Toronto. Maybe they've established a colony in Sunnybrook Park?

Turkey has landed in Don Mills - Toronto
by: veronica

One soared past my head and landed on my garden shed to jump down on the other side. I grabbed my camera and ran around my house (I'm beside a parquette) and there he was eating his mouse lunch.
DON MILLS! By The Shops! In Toronto!

I am looking at this page in Google Chrome and there is no picture? Do I need a plugin for this page?

Hi Anon, no there is no picture with this report - the person who wrote in to tell us about the nesting Turkey Vultures in Toronto, didn't get a picture.

I might add a picture of a Vulture when I have a minute!
