2010 brings another pair of American Black Vulture chicks to the barn. I’m not that familiar with the individual vultures, but what I’ve read implies the same adult pair has returned to the roosting spot in the barn. We saw the eggs first on February 15th and then were away through most of March. This Saturday, the chicks were out of the shell, but still very small. Mom does not defend them, but takes off if we go back to where she roosts.
