We can watch the vultures now that the ospreys aren't in the nest that often! Every year once the ospreys leave, the vultures take over the nest and start rummaging for leftovers. Usually the ospreys and vultures don't hang out together, but the other day two chicks and four vultures were flying around together. Maybe mom and dad forgot to tell them they're not supposed to play together? I’m not sure why we have so many vultures hanging around the dam, but they seem to be thriving.
We expect storms in the area all week (possibly strong) with temperatures in the upper 90’s.
