Turkey Vultures on the beach
We recently received reports of sightings of Turkey Vultures at Wasaga Beach - thank you Corie and Steve for writing to us.
Corie said ... My husband and I just took possession of a beach home on Allenwood Beach, in Wasaga Beach. We finally were able to take a most wanted stroll on the beach today at 7 pm. We took sight of the turkey vultures from afar, noticing their large size compared to the seagulls.
I first thought they were Wild Turkeys until they flew away as we approached. I tried to figure out what kind of bird they were and its close resemblance to a Wild Turkey help me consider them to be Turkey Vultures.
This website helped me confirm it. There were at least 10 Vultures we spotted along Allenwood beach all sharing a meal of fish along the shore lines.
Steve P said ... I was on my daily morning stroll on Allenwood Beach (part of the Wasaga Group of Beaches) this morning and I was amazed at what I saw.
I wasn't sure at first what I was witnessing but as I got closer, I was so surprised and delighted. Approximately 15 Turkey Vultures standing on the beach all gathered together at the waters edge.
My only regret is not having my camera with me, as it was such a great sight to see.
On my way home, I met a couple and we discussed the birds as they were also amazed. The Gentleman said he has a house on the beach and has lived there for over 40 years and he said, he has never seen even one Turkey Vulture land on the beach, so I guess it was our lucky day.
Great site, Thank you!
Thank you for writing to tell us about your Wasaga Beach sightings - I know our readers will find this as interesting as I did. I am also happy that you like my website (I blush!).
