While driving west on John Wise Line (more generally known as County Road 45) 
at 12:15 p.m. today, I saw a Black Vulture soaring in a southern direction 
above the road, among farmer’s fields. The vulture was specifically identified 
as a Black by it’s rapid wingbeats when flapping, pale wing tips, and 
relatively short tail. 

A more specific location of the sighting on John Wise Line is between the 
intersecting roads of County Road 73 and County Road 40. The vulture was seen 
soaring towards the stream that runs through County Road 40. 

Directions from the 401: Take the exit for County Road 73 (also known as Elgin 
Road) and head south until you reach County Road 45. Turn left (west) onto 
County Road 45 and keep your eyes to the sky (and on the road of course).
