Turkey Vulture sighting
by K Barnett
(Grand Valley, Ontario, Canada)
Observed a large black bird on June 29th 2014 in Grand Valley, Ontario, eating a small animal in our backyard at 12:30 pm.
It had a reddish head and light beak.
It is the largest bird I've seen on the property.
It spent over 15 minutes pulling at something (small prey).
I thought it was black, but maybe brown feathers.
