It was a shock to see this Black Vulture perched atop a Crab Orchard National Wildlife Refuge stop sign just before the Wolf Creek Causeway in southern Illinois. It was my first time seeing a Black Vulture, and all I can say is that it’s a face only a mother could love.
Said to have keen eyesight but a poor sense of smell, they follow other birds, typically turkey vultures, to find food. If he was searching for dinner, all he needed to do was turn around. A group of turkey vultures were dining on Armadillo a short distance up the road.
