This observation is a continuation of an earlier post documenting observations made at an active Black Vulture nest. The previous article can be found here: Black Vulture – Nest Update 15.

We found the entire family together on Saturday when we first arrived. Unfortunately, there was too much glare on the windows for good pictures.

The poor photographs on Saturday encouraged us to return to Denton on Sunday for another try. When we arrived we found the Black Vulture juvenile missing from the courtyard that had been his home all spring and summer. A quick check of the outside of the building turned him up. He was on the roof, directly opposite of where his nest had been located. The juvenile Black Vulture is flying now, and well on his way to becoming independent.
