Hundreds of Black Vultures have taken up residence in the woods around Rogers Wildlife Rehabilitation Center in Hutchins, Texas. This is video of the entire kettle as they rise into the sky on their morning thermal. At altitude the congregation breaks up and the birds go their seperate ways, only to meet up here again at the end of a full day of foraging.
