Freeloading vulture relatives!

Have you ever had a group of relatives drop in unannounced looking for a free meal? That's what's been happening at the World Bird Sanctuary lately! If you're walking along the upper trail and see a huge bird swooping right over your head, it's likely the wild relatives of our resident Turkey Vultures coming in to check out what they perceive to be a "free" meal in our birds' enclosure. Of course, they can't really get to the meal because of the protective netting, but they can hope, can't they?

This vulture family reunion was captured by Gay Schroer!

That is very interesting. I wonder what time of day the wild vultures came to visit?
