Yeah. Real vultures. On the east coast. In the areas around Vero Beach, Fort Pierce, Port St. Lucie, etc. they were circling just like in the cowboy movies. Swarms of about 30 or so at a time in lots of different areas. Occasionally, you'd drive by road kill and there they'd be hopping around and pecking away. Pretty cool.
My aunt lives out towards Tampa, and said she sees them there too. A turtle died in her driveway recently and they were all over the place. She had to get a shovel to remove the turtle and dump it in a spot where the vultures wouldn't be such a nuisance.
