|A Black Vulture story - Growing up|
This is my last picture of the "Zamuritos", they are growing and I had to leave for some days, when returned they did follow the call of nature and fledged, or better left the nest, their age of 63 and 70 days old. Usually silent, but turned very aggressive when taking pictures form them, they hissed very loud but I did not hear them bark.
Though not having any natural predators, they have become scarce in some areas due to lack of suitable nesting habitat. Will we see them again?
