American Black Vultures


Recommended Posts

We visited Audubon's Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary, 20 miles or so inland from Fort Myers in Florida and the largest remaining stand of mature Bald Cypress trees in the world.  


Whilst generally...as its name suggests...a wet and swampy sort of a place, on this occasion it was extremely dry, and one of the ponds had recently dried out, leaving a large number of dead, and very smelly catfish which were being fed on by a large group of American Black Vultures....






Mosquito incoming!

Hi @Atravelynn...yes, very much thank you.  


The vultures were a nice treat - you see them here, there and everywhere, but this was the first good opportunity in over 20 years of visiting SW Florida I've had to spend time close too them in a photogenic environment.
