At 1320h, my grad student Connor reported that all four cold Black Vultures were sitting in edge trees/hedges just SW of the leachate ponds at the Stevenson Road Cornell Composting Facility. I am afraid all he had to offer was peanuts. Anne B Clark 147 Hile School Rd Freeville, NY 13068

Now there are TWO Black Vultures here, sitting together on a board fence in the island of bushes between the two silver canopies on the slope above the piles. Conditions are a bit mucky in the piles, so looking from Stevenson might be the way to go, they should be visible from there at the moment.
