In the early afternoon, Patrick Hubert, a local birder was on his sheep farm just SW of the corner of Centre Line and Asphodel 6th Line. He saw a Black Vulture soaring near some Turkey Vultures. His description: “short, stocky vulture with black plumage and black head flying low”. As far as I know this is the first sighting of a Black Vulture in Peterborough County.

Location: Asphodel Township
