    This morning I spotted a wing tagged black vulture. If you spot one, please report your findings to the USDA.

    Make note of the date, time, location and tag (one wing, both wings, color, and number), health of the bird, area or surroundings where the bird was found or spotted, Federal leg band and any other information. You can upload pics too.

    Also report to the USGS Bird Banding Lab in MD. They maintain a central database for marked birds in North America.

    Visit their site at www.reportband.gov

    Did you see this in the group that seems to be living in the trees at the corner of Claiborne and Ellsey? There seems to be more vultures (?) there than ever before.

    Yes, it was on my neighbor's deck rail. The bird was hatched in 2018 and banded in May 2019 near Martinsburg, WV.

    The group has doubled since the parents returned with their fledglings.

    Interesting... I wonder if somehow they can be relocated. They are destroying the trees right along the trail, and the odor is so bad I don't even want to walk by there. They are becoming more of a nuisance than anything.
