Janusz from Toronto said ... I observed two large Turkey Vultures last May around 4 - 5 pm, circling the area northwest of Kipling/Dundas in the west end of Toronto. They eventually landed on the roofs of two houses across from me and later proceeded to eat something on the front lawn, perhaps a squirrel as they are plentiful in my neighbourhood. People walking dogs up and down the street did not scare them away until the meal was finished.
One of our readers wrote ... April 13, 6:17, seen from my apartment window (23rd floor), Toronto, Ontario. Two groups circling, one group of 3 individuals, two floors below the window, and one group of 4 individuals, two floors above the window. Each group circled for a minute, then mixed into one group stopped circling and sailed apart and out of sight.
Marilyn Mallet from North Lancaster wrote ... we have spotted one twice now eating a dead something on the side of the road. We have never seen any of them here. I live in North Lancaster, Ontario on 4th Line Road.
A reader from Kingston reported ... at 7.30 pm, May 21, a Turkey Vulture was walking in my front garden when my dog barked and frightened it into a tree. Have seen them at the waterfront but not in this neighbourhood before.
Louise from Fenelon Falls reported ... for the month of August last year we had Turkey Vultures circling our property just North of Fenelon Falls, Ontario, on Hwy 121. At first we thought they were hawks but upon a closer look discovered they are turkey vultures. There must have been around 20 birds. After many minutes of circling they all roost in a huge maple tree overlooking the large 1 acre pond in our back yard. We have hiked out onto the trails through our 100 acres but have not found any dead animals in the bush. There are fish and turtles in our spring fed pond but nothing dead. After living here for over 10 years this is the first time we have seen these turkey vultures so close and so many at that.
