Black Vulture sighting In IL

11 years ago

A couple of days ago I saw a lone large bird out the window of my upstairs bathroom. It was BIG, and I got a good look at the underside as it passed over. The head was definitely grayish black, the undersides of the wings were black with grayish-silver tips. I ran downstairs to look for it on the other side, and even soaring above the trees four houses away, it was still obvious how big it was. I gather these are not so often seen in these parts (60 miles west of Chicago, ZIP 60511), so thought I'd mention it now that I've identified it. Wonder if anybody else has seen any recently.
