Frank is right.? I see vultures, mostly blacks, but turkey too, all the time along the beaches in the Everglades in Florida, especially at Flamingo.? Haven't up here, but no reason for them not to.? They go where the yummy food is. Andrew Andrew v. F. Block Consulting Naturalist 20 Hancock Avenue, Apt. 3 Yonkers, Westchester Co., New York 10705-4780?www.flickr.com/photos/conuropsis/albums

Turkey Vultures and Black Vultures will commonly feed along freshwater or even ocean shorelines, usually on dead fish.
