The adventures of the two Black Vultures continue! Seems these devils have been quite the vexation at my office park. For a run of two weeks they perched atop the building, and a thick trail of guano decorated the window of a senior vice president. The birds were, we were told, "discouraged" by professionals. (They are, after all, protected from serious harm by law.) But they have returned and I've spotted them every day this week. Clearly they have found something of extreme interest. Something dead? yes, at least near enough to spot. And the four story perch is helpful in spotting the carrion. I can't say I know where these meals(?) are coming from, but I can say this will be a mighty tough nut to crack. I can hardly wait to see what tactics are used next to...discourage.
This Wingscapes BirdCam enthusiast and keeper of a well-stocked "bird cafe" has been watching birds in Cary for over 18 years. I adopted the BirdCam in December 2007 and have been working with the product daily, recording over 35 species locally and gaining significant experience with the use of this amazing device. I'm not a "power birder." While I enjoy birdwatching in the field, I appreciate the simple delights of the birds found in my own backyard or in places just down the street. These are truly interesting places and I never tire of the little stories told every day in those places. The birds are central to this experience, but expect me to talk about the things that also are part of the birdwatching experience here at Cary BirdCam, from buying bird seed to crunching numbers in the logbook. Thanks for being a reader!
