Black Friday Visitors on Block 832
Black Vultures are supposed to feed on carrion, but a neighbor on the block says they are not above stealing cat food that she puts out for the feral felines. Somebody from the apartments set down some holiday scraps for the cats and one of the Black Vultures hopped right over to dig in.
These guys are quite large, with an impressive wing span. In 20 years here I never saw Black Vultures in the neighborhood and I don't know how they picked our block as a hangout - just one of Mother Nature's little surprises.
