Photographing Black Vultures wasn’t my intention while time spent on my favorite bridge in town, but they are the closest thing we have to a Condor in our region. Not sure if this is an urban myth but found this interesting :
“Perhaps one of the most mysterious bird stories surrounds the Black Vultures of Gettysburg. For over 100 years more than 900 Black and Turkey Vultures have gathered amongst the canyons of the Gettysburg National Military Park in Pennsylvania. It is said that the first birds appeared on the 1st July, 1863. This was the final day in a battle which saw 50,000 men and thousands of horses die. The men were buried, but the corpses of the horses were left lying on the battlefield. The vultures dined in style, they may even have stayed the winter and scavenged on the frozen carcasses. Twelve months later the vultures returned, something they do to this very day…..”
My new favorite spot on river that didn’t know existed.
