Black Vulture Picture Gallery

The Black Vulture stands about 2 feet tall with black feathers and a featherless head. In flight it can be recognized soaring in a wide circular pattern on wind currents, showing all black wings with light gray wing tips. A carrion feeder ever-present throughout Florida, this bird can often be seen at roadside kills. Frequently called a "black buzzard", it has a Florida cousin, the Turkey Vulture.

The Canon EOS Digital Rebel single lens reflex (dSLR) camera was employed for most of the bird photos below. It was equipped with a  Sigma zoom lens 200-500 mm, sometimes with a 1.4 tele-extender. All photos on the page are downsized and compressed for loading speed. The high resolution 6.3 megapixel images are archived offline.
