We all love animals, so I. 1471136116722.jpg figured I'd start this. Here's what I think is a Turkey Vulture. 1471136077141.jpg apparently he doesn't like the paparazzi.
Please post pictures of wild critters from your neck of the woods

Nice shots! The fact that the head hasn't turned red indicates that this is a juvenile. Big flocks used to gather in the field behind the house i grew up in

Wow a juvenile. You mean this guy is gonna get bigger? He hangs out waiting for the bear to make a mess out of the garbage. Then cleans up after him.

Maybe, but more likely it's considered a juvenile until reaching sexual maturity. It might bulk out a little though

Mabee I don't know birds, I just know it's a vulture. Around here Turkey Vultures are common.

You're a bit north of the range of American Black Vultures, though it could have been blown off course and got lost

Yep, and the northernmost tip of their range might touch the southern tip of NY state.

Turkey vultures have huge nostrils and slightly convex beaks above the nostril, while blacks have small nostrils and slightly concave beaks. But one thing is for sure, it is a vulture lol

Here are some of my recent wildlife shots:

The young Black Tail Deer buck who frequents the yard and likes to hang out under the porch:

A paper wasp nest (What? It's wildlife!) in a tree branch about 6 feet from the ground and maybe 10 from the ocean:

Here's our local garbage picker. Not a very good shot, but I didn't want to get that close. 1471314719274.jpg 1471314835390.jpg

and after few days I found it almost dead. I believe it was living in our deserted plot, but regularly visited neighbourhood, so someone tried to kill him

Monitors have a bacteria in their saliva which is what kills someone if their bitten I believe.

While we're sharing wildlife photos here's my "pet" turtle. He sowed up in our creek this year and is determined to stay near "his" rock! Two flash floods later when I was 'sure' he'd been washed downstream he showed back up on his rock yesterday! We've named him Mortimer. I believe he's a common slider. I'd like to start leaving treats for him but am not sure what to leave and don't want to leave the wrong thing and hurt him. Any ideas? I say good morning to him every morning as I coming back from taking my son to school. (We live in the country where there is no bus service to the public school.)

here's a frog poped up in our house during monson season. It was pretty big one. We don't get to see this size commonly.

I caught this baby laughing dove from trees in house. Its parents were not attending him. So I handfed him for few days and let it go when it was able to fly.

and here is baby of "don't know english name"(black sparrow in urdu). Search google and closest resemblance is to black robin(but it belongs to newzealand )

I live in city, so we don't get any big wild life here
