Could have been mice and mice nests...also insects... grasshoppers, etc... What was the time of day? Vultures will often sit until wind and thermals arise to make flight easier.

Yesterday I saw about 50 vultures on the ground, in a field (low cut, perhaps mowed hay?), along Highway 128 in St. Croix County. They were VERY widely dispersed across the large field, and appeared to be grazing, though I didn't have the chance to stop and confirm.
I have been trying to logic this out...It didn't look like the farmer had laid down manure...
What could these birds have been doing???
