    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:;dk

    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

    You're right! They are incredibly similar but the nostrils are key. I wonder if it really is all that far out of its range or if they normally venture further north in summer?

    I grew up in southern Ontario so we only saw Turkey Vultures...or did we?;)

    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:
