tree, or thicket. A friend of mine found a single turkey vulture egg in
mid-late May in the rocky shelter shown in the first photo, in Boylston,
MA. While there is often no nest construction, in this case there was a
bit of leaf litter under the single egg. We returned to the site in
mid-June, disappointed to find the crushed egg shell. It must have been
eaten before it hatched, since there were no droppings at the nest site.
I found the roost in the 3rd photo one morning while kayaking the
Ausable River in the Adirondacks of NY. Notice the bird at lower left,
with spread wings. It is said that they do this to dry the wings, warm
the body, and bake off bacteria.
