Turkey Vultures in Thornhill

by Leslie Dawn Knowles

This morning around 8:30 am, I dropped my two boys off at school and as I was going towards Yonge Street and Clarke Ave, about a mile north of Steeles, I noticed many, many Turkey Vultures circling over a condo building on the west side of Yonge Street at Clarke.

I estimate there were at least 25-30 birds there.

As I looked around I noticed another flock of about the same size circling a construction site about a block south of there.

In the past few years I have seen the occasional bird up here but to see so many of them in a built up area was really something.

I presume they must be gathering to migrate for the winter.
