These two Black Vultures were spotted in the mysterious jungle-like Dora Canal area near Lake Eustis in Lake County, Florida. The Black Vultures live in Florida and in other states along the Gulf of Mexico. These birds also are found in Mexico, around Central America and all the way down into South America.
Like the other Vultures, these are nature’s clean up squad. Even though they are buzzards, they are handsome big birds. I took these pictures during a day-long boat trip around several lakes canals and the Dead River in central Florida on April 25, 2014. Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture. Enjoy! Wishing all Moms a happy Mother’s Day on Sunday!
