Turkey Vulture nest - Newbury, MA - May 02, 2010

Steve Grinley gave me a call during the week informing me of a possible Turkey Vulture nest in his breeding bird block in Newbury, something never seen by either of us or by Margo Goetschkes who joined us for the event.
Seen above is the granite outcropping that the vulture chose to nest in. It's in a very remote portion of the Downfall WMA. A Turkey hunter, Eric Norgaard, seen on the right in the photo below with Steve Grinley on the left, came across the nest during the week and passed the info along to Steve, volunteering to bring him back to the nest over the weekend.

and here "she" is, sitting tight on her eggs as we slowly and quietly took a few documentation photos.
