I just received a call from Ian Richards that he found a Black Vulture  
just north of Rondeau Provincial Park this morning (Saturday March  
14). It was feeding on a Virginia Opossum carcass in the ditch along  
Rose Beach Line, which runs along the lakeshore. He didn't have a  
camera at hand but any point and shoot camera would do to document  
this bird. It is only 6 feet off the edge of the road (west side).

To get there go approximately 1.9 km NNE  from the intersection of  
Kent Bridge Road (15) and Rose Beach Line (which is only a short  
distance north of the park gate). It is opposite 911 marker# 12024. He  
observed the bird at 11:00 a.m. and it was still there when he left.  
He mentioned that there was another carcass nearby so perhaps it will  
stick around for at least a little while.
