Vulture Update 4/11/05

I checked on Gertie today and guess what I found.....2 eggs!!! :blob:

We still have at least a week, maybe 2 weeks before the eggs will hatch. I'm anxiously awaiting their arrival!

Here are the pics I got tonight.

That's so cool! Is she yours or what? I haven't heard of wild birds letting people so close, that's why I'm asking.

No she's not ours...she's wild. She has just chosen to nest (two years in a row) in an abandoned shed on our land.

She is very good about letting me get close. I keep a decent distance and just talk calmly to her. She may remember me from last year. Here is a thread that has more about it: Guess Who's Back

We posted at the same time!

I'm not fostering her... she's just a wild bird that has chosen to nest in one of our abandoned sheds. See my above post with a link.

No zoom needed Donna, I was about 5 feet away from her.
